POW! It’s Labor Day Weekend, and this means that it is time for the Iowa County Fair here in Mineral Point, Wisconsin.
This fair has been happening on these very grounds for over 150 years now, and it is fabulous. . .lots of dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, etc. on display–all of them being judged for quality, size, health, and overall good looks. . .mmmm, aaaahh!! Plus, all of the people here are willing to chat with and edify us about their animals. . .a totally educational and sobering experience. Without these people…these farmers…we got nuthin’ to eat–BOOM!
Something we learned: cows have three compartments to their stomach for transforming grains and hay and grass into milk and/or beef. . .not three separate stomachs as some folks will tell you. Fascinating, right?! Right! Google ‘cow stomachs’ to learn more, if you dare.
Anyway, the sun is shining, the breezes are pleasant, the animals seem as happy as they can be being cooped up and all, and everyone is relaxed in the heartland of America–the rolling hills of Wisconsin. . .what an honor to be able to spend time here and soak up all of the good energy of farming and being alive right at this very moment–jaaaa!!
I send you agricultural vibes from the Iowa County Fair. . .feel them. . .they allow you to do other things besides worrying about where your next meal is coming from.
