All summer long on the farm we would bail hay, harvest corn and fill the silos so we can feed cattle all winter long. One morning myself and my brother Mark were feeding the cattle in my grandfather’s barn that could feed around 200 head of cattle. Each morning at 4:00 am we feed the cattle silage, sweet feed, a mixture of molasses and wheat, and hay. This was a long process that took two people over an hour. My grandfather always told us that the animals were to be feed before we were.
This particular morning Mark and I were feverously working to feed the cattle. As we worked, we were sweating through our clothes. Trying to cool off we took off layer after layer of clothing, to the point where we were just wearing a shirt.
That morning our grandfather came to the barn to check on our progress. When he saw us wearing only shirts he shouted, “You boys put your coats back on it’s 20 degrees below zero in here.”
Moral of the Story? Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t sweat at 20 below zero.
