Owning and working with livestock is a great first step to teaching youth responsibilities on the farm. First chores for farm kids often include feeding and watering the animals. It is also great to start teaching them at a young age the safety skills necessary when being around livestock and farm equipment. Being aware of surroundings wherever you may be, but especially on the farm is very important.
We had a little visitor come to help feed the cows! She was a great helper!!
