Odds are you have seen or heard about social media. Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. YouTube. Pinterest. The list goes on. You may already be using some of these tools, or you may be wondering what they are and what they do. Regardless, I want to help you understand these tools a little more.
The first thing to understand when signing up for Facebook, Twitter, or something else, is that you will not break it. It’s not like a machine, that if you don’t properly oil or maintain the parts, it will wear out. Make sure to click links you know, to make sure you don’t accidently link to a virus, and you’ll be fine!
Every legend has a beginning – and this October the Legends of the Fall will feature a long standing tradition of Milking Shorthorn greatness that is based on fact, not fiction.
In 1914, two women set out to establish a dairy farm on Grizzley Island in the San Francisco Bay delta region of California. Miss Alexander and Miss Kellogg set their sights high from the very start, selecting the herd and farm name of “Innisfail” – an Irish term meaning “Isle of Destiny”. Backed by family wealth, Alexander and Kellogg were able to purchase quality foundation animals from around the U.S. and England. In 1915 they began to exhibit their show string at western shows and by rail in Chicago. After WWI, the herd was relocated to Davis, California, where the cows were first put on official test. And, as they say, the rest is history…..
