More Things You Will Never Hear a Farmer Say

After I published the post “Top 10 Things You Will Never Hear a Farmer Say“, I received so many nice responses from friends on Twitter, Facebook and WordPress that I just had to share. Here are some more things you will never hear a farmer say….

  • I’ll get that fixed for you right away (Kelly N.)
  • I sold ALL the cows (Curtis A.)
  • I made some money this year (Keith J.)
  • The brown chore boots go better with my Carhart overalls, the black chore boots go better with the denim overalls
  • I really enjoyed talking with that lady who called from the USDA Ag Statistics Service today (My Dad)
  • I don’t mind paying taxes, no need to buy anything at the end of the year (every accountant who does farm taxes)
  • That weatherman is so smart
  • Goody! More government forms to fill out

If you have more ideas for future posts, please add them to the comments section or send them to me via Facebook or Twitter. 


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
