Father's Day special
fathers day special


4 yrs old: My daddy can do anything. 5 yrs old: My daddy knows a whole lot. 6 yrs old: My dad is smarter than your dad. 8 yrs old: My dad doesn't know exactly everything. 10 yrs old: In the olden days when my dad grew up, things were different. 12 yrs old: Oh well, Dad doesn't know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood. 15 yrs old: Don't pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned. 21 yrs old: Him? He's hopelessly out of date. 25 yrs old: Dad knows a little bit about it, but then he should because he's been around so long. 30 yrs old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he's had a lot of experience. 35 yrs old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad. 40 yrs old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise and had a world of experience. 50 yrs old: I'd give anything if Dad were here now so we could talk this over. Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

CA$H COW winners

Our CA$H COW contest has started over since we had an $800 winner in April. We did not have a $100 winner in May, so the big prize is now $200 for June.

Remember, every Monday in our creamery, 5 jugs are marked with $5.00. When your gallon jug is empty, look inside under the wallaby on the label to see if you are a winner, then claim your prize at either Moo Roo or the Outlet.

May's $5 winners: Rose Wallace, Waterloo; John Smith, Cedar Falls; Kevin Patterson, Waterloo; Lampost Theatre Co., Cedar Falls; Sherry Becker, Waterloo

A good way to start your day

BULL of the Month

Instead of Cow of the Month, in June we are celebrating Bull of the Month. Lenny's existence on the farm is summed up this way:

1 bull + 170 females = 1 lucky guy
