Holy Cow! That's how I feel sometimes about my Prancing Dancing Lily. That spunky Ayrshire cow has brought me so many new friends and so much fun. She's angelic.

A recent delight was being interviewed by Progressive Dairyman My father, who was a dairy farmer in Kansas, would have loved these interviews. Progressive Dairyman is the source of dairy information for dairymen throughout the United States and they publish four magazines on the subject.

Emily Caldwell, East Coast Editor, loved that my Lily book and app are about a dairy cow and she especially loved that Lily helps kids learn about cows and dairy farming. So the interviewing began.

Progressive Dairyman is serious about getting the information out in different versions. 

I love the app video where Emily interviewed myself and my app producer, Fat Red Couch's CEO, Nicole Lundeen. She inserted not only images from Lily's books and school visits, but photos of my father's dairy farm when I was a child. Join the Lily fun here.

There's also a print article written by Jen Bradly about the farm that inspired Lily and the many ways Lily has interacted with kids in schools. There's even a photo of a conga line with cows...well, kid cows.

But my favorite is probably the article in Progressive Dairyman's print magazine because with the ads, which include cow photos, it reminds me of the magazines my father got in the mail when I was a kid on the farm.

Thanks Progressive Dairyman for bringing me back to my farm girl roots.
