My son Joseph and I have a small cow herd — 30 mama cows in all. I stay involved for two reasons. First, it keeps me tied to the land and to my past. Secondly, it contributes to my mental health. Joseph partners with me because he thinks he’s making money. Of course, raising cattle is not wi…

I spoke to Dad earlier. He shared what his day consisted of thus far. He ate his usual yogurt with “crunchie stuff” for breakfast. Shortly after, his coffee kicked in then nature took its course. One shower and two bottles of water later, he sat down to watch his favorite episode of “Walker,…
