BECAUSE I APPRECIATE family dairy farms and because I am grateful to Ron and Diane Wegner and their daughters, Brianna and Kaylee, for opening their farm to area residents, here are more photos from “A Day on the Farm.” The Wegners hosted this event on Saturday in rural Rice County, Minnesota. Click here to see additional photos from my first post.
The beautiful old barn on the Wegners’ third-generation family farm.
The Wegners milk 50 registered Holsteins.
This scene inside the barn caught my farm girl eye.
Fence leaning and wagon towing.
Twins Kelly and Emily, almost two, visit the farm with their dad.
Rice County Dairy Maid Kelsey Kuball applies a temporary tattoo to a young visitor’s arm.
A farm cat that was just a wee skittish with about 600 strangers wandering around the farm.
Rice County Dairy Princess Kaylee Wegner waits for kids to arrive for a photo shoot with the calf.
A trio of silos next to the Wegners’ barn.
My favorite outbuilding, to the left.
