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.

  1. jheem, I Love your photo’s, but on the “Flags” picture, could you add a small caption explaining to people like me (from UK) what each of the flags represent and the venue. Thanks

      That is a good idea! I have to admit that other than the American flag and Nebraska state flag (first two flags), I’m not sure what they all are. Since we were playing Wisconsin, one of the flags is probably their state flag and the other two might be the flags of the military unit(s) that were flag bearers at the game.

    Thank you for the pictures of the flags.

    In order these flags are:
    United States Flag
    Wisconsin State Flag (I believe, tough to tell)
    US Army Flag
    US Marines Flag
    US Navy Flag
    US Air Force Flag
