This is a whole lot better than an Easter Basket.

This is how you like to start a Flush day. First 2 cows in, making embryos to Irish Whiskey and Affliction. (Each yellow straw is an embryo and they are starting the freezing process) It is so exciting thinking about how they go from here to a live calf and a new generation. Reason 171 why I love this business.
