The boys watching them clean the barn... twice a day they use a tractor to scoop the poop... yes, the boys were mesmerized by this process. I think it was their favorite part all day! And I'm not kidding!!
Milking a cow... Jaxon kept asking Mrs. Hansen when he could milk a cow... finally it came up on the tour!
Watching and listening so well to the details of just how that milk gets from a cow and into those plastic jugs! Pretty cool set-up!
One of the last things we did was make butter... lots of shaking that ended in a yummy snack for them :)
Happy 5th Birthday Mason! Hope you liked our special afternoon at the farm!!!
On a side note... we started drinking Hansen's milk when dairy products were so high. Hansen's was cheaper then! Since then Austin also switched to whole milk from breast-feeding. Some of you remember that Austin had a bad reaction to dairy products that I was consuming when I first nursed him. (blood in his diapers, extreme spit up, rash) I did not eat dairy for 3 months and then I slowly started consuming it again, but used Hansen's products. Austin can drink Hansen's milk just fine, but when we give him a different brand he tends to spit up this cottage cheesy type stuff for the next couple hours after he's had it. Anyways, Hansen's cows are raised with no added growth hormones and is non-homogenized. Austin can digest this so much better then homogenized milk. Anyways, we're so happy with their product that even now after dairy prices have gone back down we still spend the little extra to have such great quality milk! Thanks Hansen's Dairy!!!
