Why I Love Wyoming:

Here is a funny story about Why I Love Wyoming:

When it’s Springtime in Wyoming …
And the gentle breezes blow
At about seventy miles per hour
And it’s fifty-two below.
You can tell you’re in Wyoming
Cuz the snow’s up to your butt
And you take a breath of Springtime air
And your nose holes both freeze shut.
The weather here is wonderful …
So I guess I’ll hang around.
I could never leave Wyoming
Cuz my feet are frozen to the ground

More bad news for dairy farmers:

Dairy Farmers across the United States are struggling from the low milk prices over a long time. It’s hard to earn a living when you’re finished product sells for less than what you got into it. It’s time we pay attention and help facilitate a revolution of the supply train and encourage Farmers to sell direct to consumer. Otherwise the family farmers are going to be a thing of the past. Here’s an article talking about what’s going on with the Dairy Farmers yet one more article calling out the struggle.
