14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Brisk morning bonding time after feeding cattle.
I'm going to graduate from college in May and work at a cattle farm while in school. The first of my family to attend college instead of working at the family farm right out of high school. I wanted to capture simply moments, such as the calves following their mom's to eat, so I had something to remind me of them after I graduate. The calf that is looking at 021 in the photograph is her mom and is going to be weaned soon and started on grain. It's a funny photo because the calf just wanted to know what mom was eating. After graduation, I'm going to purchase my own cattle and start my own one woman farm.
