Our Other Love – Basketball
My family definitely is passionate about caring for cows, but we also love basketball! Because of our employees who help fill in for us and work together as a team — and because of the flexibility dairy farming provides for our family — we are able to be involved with our high school basketball teams. Steve coaches Jacob on the boys’ varsity basketball team and Levi plays on the junior varsity team.
Many nights after school and before practice I have the privilege of feeding my own boys and the many teammates they bring home with them. I love not only getting to know these athletes, but also feeding them a nutritious meal. They burn a lot of calories in their basketball workouts and I enjoy helping keep them fit, fueled and healthy. This, of course, includes milk! They know it is always in our refrigerator. I feel confident that this is the best drink for them and it keeps their bodies in top condition!
