Farm Animals Too



Everyone survived a week of midterms, and now Missouri State University is out for a week of spring break. It is always great to be back at my country home, and I know the week is going to fly by. Above is a picture of what I came home to. When you think about farm animals, you generally think about cows, pigs, sheep, horses, and well you know what I mean, but you can’t forget about the cats! They play a big part around here too. Although when you think about it they don’t really do much besides catch mice, and I must say that in the sixteen years I have lived in this house, I have never seen a mouse anywhere around the house. They are just good animals to have around. It’s always fun to have a cat lying on your lap when you watch TV at night. They also have quite the personality. These two cats shown in the picture especially. Their names are Clyde and Tom, and they are spoiled rotten. I’m pretty sure they are smiling in this picture. These two are definitely entertaining.

Also everyone reading this would definately like my good friend Mallory Early’s blog at:

About akm17

My name is Alex Morris, and I am from a small, rural town in Missouri called Ballard. I grew up on a row crop and cow/calf operation. I have always loved the farm life, and I have always been very active around our farm. Now, for the first time, I have been away from where I grew up and am experiencing college. It is always good to go back home to the farm, and I try to make it there as often as I can. It’s my favorite place to be. Being away has only made me appreciate agriculture more. Here, at Missouri State University, I am majoring in Agricultural Communications and I plan to have an emphasis in graphic design. My goal is to be an advocate of agriculture. The way I am going to start “spreading the word” of agriculture is through this blog. I plan to share the issues I may come across, things I find in the social media, or topics that we disucuss in my Relations in Agriculture class or any of my other classes. I will also share stories straight off of my farm. I will talk a little about what goes on around there, and post pictures whenever I can, because they are worth a thousand words that don’t have to be typed. I love to take pictures and to tell good stories. Sometimes I may even talk about life in general if I come across something that needs to be shared. Overall, I am a very stong believer in agriculture. It’s where my heart is, and I want to make people aware of what is going on out there, and bring things to their notice they may not be aware of. I believe that is my job as an agriculture advocate, and this blog is just where I am starting out.

  1. My Grandma has cats and they are always fun to play with. I am not a big fan of them shedding but they are a lot of fun. They always have an attitude but they don’t care lol. Thanks for promoting me!

  2. Most people do overlook cats as farm animals, however, we wouldn’t be able to keep enough feed in the shed if it weren’t for them. They are wonderful for mouse control, but are also more than willing to cuddle! Thanks for giving them the attention they really deserve!
