He's from the very rural midwest. He's never actually seen a black person. Nor a mexican for that matter.
Is he woke?
Every morning at 4:00 am
That is what is important.


Yep. The cows won't wait

He eats lunch at dusk and then does another four hours.
And does his wife get the same pay as him?
She's a handsome women and used to hauling
Do his cows free range?
Funny you should ask that. He tries to get them out to graze at least three times a week but usually, they simply will.not.go. It's cozy in the barn. Milking cows are notoriously lazy creatures. They will stand just long enough to eat and be milked. They will sometimes mosey over to the back-scratching machine, of which there are a dozen or so. They each have their own padded rubber birth (think of a three inch thick gym mat) on top of which goes another 6 inches of fresh sawdust daily. They spend 20 out of 24 hours sleeping sleeping right there. Free-range would be too hard on the cows. It is a fucking life of luxury and their titties get sucked three times daily.

There's something very cathartic about big machines and dam busting. I recommend watching full-screen at 2x speed.



Don't feel bad for the beavers. They'll rebuild next year. They never get a permit, never consult county engineers, and don't give the slightest fuck-all about flooding fifty acres of farmland to build their watery abodes. They're anarchists, each and every one.

If I remember my James Michener novels correctly, they typically work in monogamous husband-wife teams (who cheat on each other if they can but never divorce). I understand beaver tail is delicious and they make good hats. $8-$10 bounty in some states.

I had no idea that was a thing. We had a next-next-door neighbor who was a dairy farmer when I grew up and I did visit his farm a few times and saw what was going on in the barn there. It was pretty modern for the times. But no scratching machines. They did have a UV light with an electric cage around it to kill flies.

They had a pasture too of course. The cows would go out to pasture of their own accord.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

After 10th generation dairy farmer, I somehow ended up subscribed to about a dozen farming channels. I enjoy them much.

Not only does this guy work his ass off, he's also a cancer survivor. Respect.
