Discover what life was like growing up on a Minnesota dairy farm. Work hard and play hard alongside the Fisher family during the dairy farming boom years of the 1960s and 1970s; a time when a family could earn a good living off of 160 acres of land and milking thirty dairy cows. It was also a time when farm kids had to work just as hard as adults to keep the farm solvent. Read true stories about those kids milking cows, driving tractors, baling hay, fixing machinery, raising livestock, and butchering pigs. You’ll also read about their wild adventures riding livestock, driving a schoolbus, and rebelling against a strict father. This book will give the reader an accurate snapshot of a colorful way of life that has now disappeared across most of the country.
