W Is For Wee Ones

It's June dairy Month! The barn doors are open, 
so join me on my daily A to Z journey 
to learn more about dairy. 
  W Is For Wee Ones

Wee ones, as in children, (not Leprechauns),  came to visit Bremer Farms. It is always enjoyable to have visitors and share what it is like to be dairy farmers, but there is nothing more fun than hosting wee visitors, many who have never been on a farm.

Picture first, then cows.

 Our first stop was the cows. As you can see they were a bit shy this morning. Was it the sounds of the children, or the fact that the cows were eating after being milked? I'm thinking it was a combination. They did finally show up.

After touring the milking barn, explaining how cows are milked, and where the milk goes after leaving the cow, and leaving our farm, 
it was off to see the calves.

This is always the favorite stop on the tour. Is it because the kiddos can see eye-to-eye with the calves, or because the calves are so gosh darn cute? 
You decide...

It's always fun to pet a calf...

scratch the itch a calf can't reach...
name a calf (Licky)...

or let a calf nibble on your shirt.

And then, of course there are the kittens. No one could resist 
cuddling with a kitty. Ten kittens...

but they all took turns holding the gray one...

a very patient kitten!

After a glass of chocolate milk (to refuel from the exhausting tour) and an ice cream sandwich (just because) it was time for Nanette's wee ones to head off. Thanks for visiting!
