My husband and I are proud dairy farmers in Western Michigan. A shrinking number of people can continue to say that they work in this truly honorable profession. But do farmers define it as a 'profession'? Probably not. It is our lifestyle, our tradition, our passion. We do not continue to milk cows because it is lucrative. We do it because it's engrained in us.
