Over the weekend, I hope you remembered to celebrate your dad. Father’s Day was Sunday, and for our family, it was another holiday spent in the hayfield. We enjoyed lunch sitting on the tailgate of the pickup and thanked our dad for everything he’s done for us by helping him put up hay for winter. Later, we celebrated my husband’s first Father’s Day fishing on the lake.
Although the holiday is behind us, I thought you might still enjoy these four links including blogs, recipes and photographs that pay tribute to the cowboys and cattlemen we love.
Check out this gallery of cowboys and cattlemen doing what they do best — working on the ranch, tending to livestock and being stewards of the land.

So without further ado, here are the farm dads and kids and advice that represent the very best of American agriculture! Here's a look at the dads who shape each generation.”
