About jheem

I grew up on a diversified dairy farm in southeast South Dakota where I learned how to throw a hay bale, pull a calf, deal with death, and "name" the cows. I was in 4H and FFA, and was privileged to serve as a state FFA officer. In college, I studied animal science, focusing on beef cows, mostly because I figured they were less work than dairy cows....I ended up with a Masters Degree in ruminant nutrition and went to work for the University of Nebraska, first as a research tech coordinating data collection for a swine unit and beef feedlot on a research farm and then as an extension educator. In my current job, I focus on environmental issues related to animal agriculture (which is a nice way of saying I talk about manure alot). My husband and I live and work on a seedstock cattle operation in northeast Nebraska. You can learn more about our cattle operation by visiting my husband's blog at http://aldersonangus.wordpress.com.

    Isn’t the wheather a roller coaster this winter? I am thankful for the lack of blizzards and extreme long cold.(so far)
    I came upon your blog this morning! I should be getting my work done but it is 11:30 a.m. and I am still in my pj’s. I am a poor example of a hard working farm wife today. Hubby is at a calf sale and I have the house to myself. I guess I am indulging in the day.
    Thank you for taking the time with your blog site. I think I am going to enjoy my visits.
