Meet August's cow of the month: Elsie! She's the oldest cow in our herd, coming in at 13 years old. She easily stands out in the herd, with her whitening face, her wise eyes, and her missing ear tag (she was number 99). She's a sweet old gal who loves to munch on grass and have her poll (that big bump on top of her head) scratched. She still keeps up with all of the younger cows and is never the last cow to get where she's headed. We're hopeful that she'll stay with us for a long time!
