FARMER IN TRAIN­ING

Farm & Ranch Living - - LOVIN’ THE LIFE - HEIDI GINGERICH DETWEILER

I snapped this photo of my 1-year-old son, Si­mon, with his grand­fa­ther, “Papa Ed,” check­ing out cat­tle. Grandpa has a herd of 200-plus beef cat­tle on Gingerich Farms in south­east Iowa. We value our vis­its to see Papa Ed, and the cat­tle, be­cause we live out of state. This was the first time my son re­ally got out on the farm, and he loved it. He was fear­less around the herd with Papa Ed at his side. It’s so neat to see my father’s love and care for the land, the cat­tle and his grand­son all cap­tured to­gether.
