|I'm ready for my close-up!|
Otherwise, it's hard to believe my folks didn't go.
It's one fun event, that is for sure!
This year's Dane County Breakfast was outside of Ashton on the Meinholz place, Blue Star Dairy.
The weather was perfect.
The farm beautiful.

For a working farm milking 500 cows twice a day, nearly around the clock, it is impressive to see immaculate gardens, neatly cut grass, and well-groomed cows. I have no idea how many hours it all took, but it is a very large number!
|The breakfast is a way to learn |
the origin of dairy products.
A strategy to get fed fast is to arrive early. We got there a little later than usual, but the line moved fast.
It helped the cue that the line wound under three majestic Poplar trees and a yogurt sponsor offered small cups of their product.
|Music on stage all morning.|
Musical entertainment. Mascots. Face painting. A very cool display of Lego creations.
Cows and an up-close look at a dairy operation starting with a maternity ward of expecting cows and calves just a couple days old getting steady on their feet.
|Who doesn't love mascots?|
There was one of the prettiest pastures I've ever seen and a herd of cows right out of central casting. Several sauntered to the fence to saw howdy and pose for pictures (see top picture).
|Arrived just in time for the party!|
If you've never had breakfast on the farm, you should. Friends attended with us this year, and it was their first. I don't think it will be their last.
June is Dairy Month, so there are more breakfasts on tap, you can look for one near you here.
