A huge THANK YOU to my cattle friend, Joe Shere! If you ask Joe about being a goat farmer, he will tell you in a hurry that he is a cattle farmer! He was a goat farmer for 30 minutes this summer as he bought some goats for his wife, Julie Shere of Shere Country Ranch, and then gave them to her for her birthday/anniversary present. LIttle does he know, he must be a goat farmer at heart. While I was out of town yesterday for my daughters doctor appt in Duluth, Joe stopped by to check on one of my best does only to find her in labor and the start of one kid coming out. Joe stayed and helped Raven deliver healthy buck/doe twins. He got them dried off, made sure they were fed and called me to let me know that everything was good. Oh, how I owe him big! Joe is off this weekend to a cattle sale, and he has quite a few of his cows that are due. I guess I will be sitting in my lawn chair, coffee in hand, on calf watch for him! Thank you again, Joe!
