Of course, she thinks she can g{ei away and may drag you around a little and even slam you into a wall or gate until you finally force her to stop by pushing her head in the air. You can set her on her rump and bend over, dodging her flaying feet, and proceed to build up the grip in your hands trying to trim her hooves with an oversized pair of toenail clippers which suddenly seem to be the dullest instru- ment on the farm. Part of the exercise of catch- ing sheep can be eliminated by putting them into a very small pen and creating a fantastic new exercise. This involves trying to move one ewe off your toes while holding and doping another one.

I especially remember the January in the late 1970's when the temperature stayed 10 to 20 degrees below zero for at least two weeks and it snowed every day. We had calves being born and, although the cows were penned in the barn, it was so cold that newborns could freeze despite their mother' best efforts.

The wind filled the space between them with the dry powdery stuff, making getting the pick-up to the house almost Impossible. Many mornings Robert returned from the cow barn toting a calf in a burlap sack on his back. A few hours later the calf had thawed and dried in our base- ment and wanted its mother. It now felt good and kicked and lunged as Robert carried it back to the barn. It was exciting to try to keep on the snow wall with this moving load on your back and real exercise when you lost your footing and fell into the waist high powder. Where I live we have a lot of fresh air. Robert puts on layers of clothing to enjoy all this fresh- ness as,~e trudges to and from barns in the winter. Yes, farmers know about exercise and fresh air. The animals decree that the farmer will never become a couch potato.

Over 100 years ago, when Adolphus Busch created Budweiser, he had only one rule: Never compromise on quality. That's why we still brew our beer with only tile finest hops and grains. And that's why we're now the only brewer who continues to use Beechwood aging to aid the natural carbonation of our beer. No other brewer has suth a tradition of quality to live up to. But then, no other brewer makes the King of Beers.
