Mothers are very special. At any given day, mothers would rather tell the story of their families and children instead of her own. So today, in celebration of Mother’s day, we want to share her story.
This is a story of Laura Rowe.
Laura and Tanner Rowe along with their three young children raise beef cattle, row crops and horses at their family farm in central Iowa. On an early summer evening, one of our Women In Ag panelists, Marji Alaniz visited the Rowe Farm; Laura had just gotten home from her full-time off the farm job where she works for a large agribusiness. On the agenda that evening was feeding the horses and a bottle calf, followed by a riding lesson. Laura grew up riding horses and is passing that love of riding down to her children, Cecilia (8), Benton (7), and Adeline (5).
She followed and photographed as Laura and the girls made their way to the barn and the girls mixed up the feed for their horses. Read the full story on the Rowe family (and other women in agriculture) on FarmHer.
