I was raised on a family farm, where I did all sorts of farm work in my formative years.
Let’s see—I fed and watered calves, drove cattle, milked cows, washed the dairy barn, searched for lost livestock, fed and watered sheep, gave medicine to sheep, docked lambs, fed swine, chickens, ducks, geese and goats, butchered chickens, gathered eggs, chased various escaping animals, rode a horse, fixed fences, hauled grain, sowed wheat, plowed and worked ground, cut hay, baled hay, hauled hay, picked and husked corn, loaded silage, ground grain.
At various times I operated vehicles, including pickups, tractors and combines.
When I look back on all of this, I see farm labor as an important part of my upbringing. It taught me a lot about life, work and responsibility.
