There is also some kind of Dinosaur park south of Daniel on I-65, don't remember the name, but would be interesting for children I'm sure.


That is right off I65 at the Cave City exit. Going south on I65, take a right at top of the ramp. "Dinosaur World" is then just a few hundred feet down on the left. This is the same exit you take to go to Mammoth Cave.

Now here in Ohio that is true also, even goats milk. And yes there have been some especially nasty court cases. But anybody can get it to feed to their animals....Oh, ya and the Amish around here sell it back and forth without any trouble. Also I've had friends who were told by Dr's to get milk from a local farm for some babies digestive systems. So if it really has e-coli and salmonella and such in it how come it's o.k. to feed to to colicky babies and to animals that we in turn can eat? My own family rarely has store bought milk and we haven't died yet, and in fact generally seem more healthy than the "city milk drinkers" in these parts...My grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, etc. all seemed to live just fine drinking fresh milk ! Maybe the clean common sense handling is more important, and maybe it is just another "follow the buck" as the gov. protects us from ourselves... :confuse:



Yes, Agreed.
Just another step in the pussification of the world.
Soon we'll be riding around on self steering bicycles, wearing full body armour, and chewing on powdered milk and
bird seed recycleable gum.

If we got caught handing out un-pasturized milk....we get shut down!


If you don't keep the cows in a pasture... where do you keep them?

As far as people getting sick from un-pasteurized milk products.....I think where the problem lies is people living in too pure a world. Us country folk grow up with bacteria all around. Getting dirty was half the fun of childhood. Going barefoot, manure squishing up between our toes, dropping our snacks on the ground, & beating the 5 second rule to go ahead & eat it...all served to help our bodies build natural immunities to a lot of this stuff. People that have never been around bacteria have no immunities whatsoever, and are very susceptible to severe problems.
Ok....that said, Will.....you better get down here & squish some manure with your feet........then plow! :smilewink:

Daniel,
I agree with you 110% on this. Many of the guys I grew up with who were "town kids" are already gone due to the big C word, cancer. While a lot of it wasn't fun at the time looking back on it we "farm boys" were the lucky ones.

Pheeeew! I thought I was the only crazy one who believed that there's such a thing as "too clean"! This could turn into a real editorial from me, but I'm gonna leave it at I wholeheartedly agree that the sterile world we're trying to create isn't doing us any favors! I will also add that the advent of infant formulas in the 1960's excised uncountable generations of irreplaceable immunity from the human race. Couple that with the super bugs we've created and...well you get the picture! Off the soap box now! That's my $.02.

Danial, "5 second rule"??? You all must have slow moving dogs !! around here anything you can get back from the dog(s) is still good !! :laughingteeth:

Will, I couldn't agree more we are creating a whole society of "entitlement wimps"
My wife recently picked up a cookbook at a store and flipped through it...every recipe for a chicken dinner started with "pick up boneless chicken" ... :(

Right now, counting those who say they WILL be coming, we have a count of 28. There are 10 more not on the list on the first post of this thread from a local tractor club. If all the "maybe's" get to come, then the count is 32!

I added your Plow Day to the Events Calendar and also added a RSVP so folks can just click on the box and their name will be added. Looks like a good count already Daniel.

Are you lost Fred? Bout time you get to posting! The most important "spiffing" is to shine up that moldboard with some good old dirt!
