One of the comments we consistently get, is about how beautiful the farm is (we so appreciate that and 100% agree, it’s truly our happy place), but I think that one of the reasons it looks beautiful is because we’ve put a LOT of effort over the years into creating an environment where our animals could thrive and enjoy a happy and low stress life. Plenty of water, shade and really good grass. 👌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There has been a lot of research done on the benefits of this beyond it just being the humane and right thing to do. It goes a long way to improving meat quality and ultimately that increases your farms demand in the eyes of the consumer by producing a higher quality product. Regenerative ranching also inherently improves the ecological systems of your farm and helps to repair our environment by reducing carbon emissions (and when done right as @whiteoakpastures proved, can even be carbon negative) So doing the right thing really does pay off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Head over to www.hoodfamilyfarms.com to read our latest blog post on this topic. We’d love to hear your thoughts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, enjoy this photo of baby Jack and his mama trying to sneak up to the back of the gator where they know we keep their treats 💚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #farm #farming #sustainablefarming #grassfedbeef #pastureraised #familyfarm #igfarm #instafarm #calves #heifer #cows #greenliving #regenerativeagriculture #farmanimal #farmlife #country #knowyourfarmer #iamamodernfarmer #smallfarm #photographer #happyfarmily #lifeonthefarm #farmliving #ig_countryside #bestnatureshot #farmphotography #natureshooters #lovecows #cowsofinstagram

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! The crisp air (and apples 😍🍎), the beautiful sunsets, and the changing leaves 🍂. The day I took this picture, in the fall of 2016, Nick and I were helping at an event for SDSU Animal Science. We had just caught up with a former classmate, who would put us in contact the next day with our future employers on the ranch. . It was a really exciting moment. Little did I know how much it would change our lives and strengthen our relationship. It’s crazy how days that seemed like any other can completely change the path we’re on. . I wouldn’t change a thing because maybe we wouldn’t be here, but fall always reminds me that change is ok and sometimes we have to fall before we can blossom. . 🐮Maggie . . . #fall #changes #lifechanges #mnmom #farm #farmer #cows #cow #cowsofinstagram #tbt #throwbackthursday #thursday #sunset #sodak #605pride #shoplocalmn

Cows mean so much to so many. 🐄 • • They are a source of affordable & mouthwatering food. 🧀🍕🍦🥛 • • Their waste restores nutrients to the soil and powers many rural homes. 💩🏡 • • They directly provide income for 900,000+ people in the US alone! 🚜 • • They also provide me pictures for the Gram. 😂📸 • • Cows are pretty freaking cool. 😎

Simon and Patrick must have decided they needed to really go exploring because they were in none of their usual spots this morning. Naturally, being calm cool and collected as I am, I had already drafted the police report in my head while simultaneously planning some vigilante justice for whoever had taken these sweet boys. Before I could call 911 – most likely to file the first ever report of stolen llamas in Cairo Georgia – I found them behind the trees in the furthest corner of the pasture. I was so excited, I wanted to hug them but they were totally nonchalant and couldn’t figure out what all the fuss was about. I’m just happy to see their smiling faces. 🙌🏻💕

We arrived yesterday in Lauterbrunnen but couldnt take any good pictures yesterday as it absolutely tanked it down with rain...the best I could have done was shown you a picture of the massive baguette I made...it was pretty impressive . . Today however the weather has outdone itself and after a bit of a lie in we walked from Lauterbrunnen to the Trummelbachfalle to look at the impressive waterfalls that are carving their way inside of the mountain. The sound of the rushing water was deafening yet somewhat peaceful. . . I also had the pleasure of befriending a cow on the way. I believe the cow is my spirit animal so its only right they follow me wherever I go . . Heres some images...mainly of cows...some of the views on our way. Now time for rosti and beer 🇨🇭 . . #switzerland #travelling #travels #holiday #swissalps #adventure #adventures #europe #vanlife #campervanlife #campervanadventures #ilovecows #cowismyspiritanimal #cowsofinstagram

L👀k at this beauty!! She’s so unique! I’m always partial to the ones that are a little bit different 😍 My partner in crime is with me today to greet the new babies. She face planted last night and busted her face up and her lip and knee. She has a “limp” sometimes 🤣 and may be “milking” it today but I let her stay with me. Also it’s a cool 69 degrees this morning!🙌🏻 it will get to 88 this afternoon but hey, we’ll take it!! 🐮 🐮 #norwegianred #dairy #milk #milklife #farming #farmlife #dairylife #dairyfarm #drinkmilk #dairycows #cheese #familyfarm #agriculture #teachthemyoung #butter #icecream #holstein #cowsofinstagram #cowphotography #agvocate #agphoto #agphotography #cowphoto #agdaily #gotmilk #SOWEGA #farmher #futurefarmher #farmersofinstagram #amj4

With more snow on the ground and waking up to -18 celcius, I am thinking back to the beginning of August and moving these ladies to green pasture! This particular move didn't go quite as planned. Shortly after I snapped this picture the herd split on me and what I thought was going to be an easy morning turned into an all morning excursion! Eventually, everyone ended up in the proper spot and once again I learned some valuable lessons! Always learning on the farm 👍 Hopeful that the weather turns around for these ladies and their young ones 🐄 . . . #yyc #okotoks #farmlife #ranchraisedbeef #dryagedbeef #cowsofinstagram #knowyourrancher #winteriscoming

Sweet Summer Days....I am going to hold this image in my mind the next few days. The winds are forecasted to blow 25 to 30+ mph with plummeting temps throughout the day and into tomorrow. And oh yes, we are having a cold rain with ❄️ on the way! Don’t want to sound “complainy” but summer days didn’t stay around long enough..... Prayers for the farmers and ranchers to the North and West of us. Their forecasted weather is much worse than ours 🙏🏻. #dreamingofsummer #coldweatherdays #angus #anguscattle #angusranch #anguscattlefarmer #blackangus #blackanguscattle #blackanguscows #outinthepasture #checkingpairs #ranch #ranchlife #cows #cowsofinstagram #angusbreed #justranchin #cowcountry #nebraskaranch #nebraskalife #nebraskacattleranch #nebraskastrong #nebraskabeef #nebraskasandhills #nebraskaweather #huntangus

With 2,500 cows on his Ohio farm, Sam Dilsaver deals with a lot of manure. He takes careful steps to ensure manure stays out of the local water supply. Manure is picked up by a vacuum truck and unloaded into what Sam calls a “lazy river,” where sand is separated from the manure and water, then reused for bedding. Manure is stored in lagoons with clay liners, which have storage for about 500 days. * To celebrate #NationalFarmersDay on Oct. 12, we’re introducing you to Ohio and West Virginia dairy farming families who are proud to help provide healthy, safe milk for families near and far.

Sweet Pea’s favorite treat is comfrey! She will box the other calves out of the way so she can eat as much as possible!
