Calf Pulling, Hus­band Train­ing, and Other Curi­ous Dis­patches from a Mid­west­ern Dairy Farmer

BY Jerry Nelson

Jerry Nelson’s col­umn comes from the true heart of the Mid­west. He has the true voice, the slow twang. He knows wheat from bar­ley. He knows hard­ware, he knows veg­e­ta­tion, he knows people.”—Garrison Keillor

In the tra­di­tion of Mark Twain and Jean Shep­herd, Dave Barry and Gar­ri­son Keil­lor, Jerry Nel­son is a humorist whose beat is the Amer­i­can heart­land, a small-town world of pickup trucks and Sun­day night pan­cake din­ners, drop­ping in on neigh­bors and com­plain­ing about the county agent.

His depic­tions of daily life, from the point of view of an ex-dairy farmer and tac­i­turn hus­band with a twin­kle in his eye, are read by 250,000 peo­ple a week—and occa­sion­ally woven into Prairie Home Com­pan­ion scripts. These are sto­ries of courtship; childbirth—he offers the deliv­ery room doc­tor the use of his calf puller; fam­ily; neigh­bors; chores; and the duties of a father—why is it that a man who spends his days in cow manure can’t change a baby’s dia­per? Knee-slappingly funny one moment, poignant the next, it’s a very spe­cial look at a dis­tinctly Amer­i­can way of life.

Beer and Cheese Tasting

What bet­ter way to cel­e­brate Amer­i­can Cheese Month than to host a local brew­ery!? We’re really excited to have our friends from Goat Ridge Brew­ery visit for our annual Beer and Cheese tast­ing. This year is a lit­tle extra spe­cial though. We have 8 wheels of beer-infused ched­dar that are just wait­ing to be sliced into. Each wheel was soaked in a dif­fer­ent vari­ety of beer. How will they taste? Don’t miss this.
