Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of getting chores done, pens cleaned and all of the other daily tasks that come about on a farm completed, it’s easy to forget to show appreciation to one of the people who helps keep things going — our livestock dads. In honor of Father’s Day, we asked a few people what they were thankful their dads’ helped them learn, using livestock as the tool to make them into great people. Check out their thoughts below.
Dad, thank you for…
Teaching me responsibility:
Dalton with his dad, Travis
“Learning from my dad how to show livestock and properly care for them has not only taught me responsibility, but also to always give it my all and be the very best I can be. Spending time with my dad at shows and in the barn is something that I always look forward to.”
