    Default Forgotten Dairy Cow Serenader on Mandolin

    If you don't want to watch the whole 12 minutes then go to 5:31. An interesting story of an interesting but forgotten woman who was once an inspiration in gentle animal husbandry.

    Maybe, the outcome would have been different if she had played the banjo!

    Not that it will matter here, but the description of her farming methods was spot on for what modern farming is becoming. More care to the animals, composting wastes to improve soil, are part of that new approach to farming that is actually quite old. My grandfather, who also played mandolin, always claimed chicken poop made the best gardens. The old folks knew more than we give them credit for, they have been here before.
