I don’t know a Guernsey from a Holstein from a Hereford. I even had to look up cow breeds on the Internet to be able to write that sentence.

At one company where I used to work, we had an offsite management meeting at Traders Point Creamery, an Indianapolis dairy farm. They rent a small conference room for such things. We were a small company, so all of us managers fit.

While lining up for a group photo, these cows moved by below. Cows and corporate strategy. Not a natural fit.

    Well, there’s a herd mentality, there’s poop, and there’s noise with not much being said.

    Seems pretty corporate to me :)

      Reminds me of this very old joke:

      In the Beginning was The Plan
      And then came the Assumptions
      And the Assumptions were without form
      And the Plan was completely without substance
      And the darkness was upon the face of the Workers
      And the Workers spoke amongst themselves, saying
      “It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh.”
      And the Workers went unto their Supervisors and sayeth,
      “It is a pail of dung and none may abide the odor thereof.”
      And the Supervisors went unto their Managers and sayeth unto them,
      “It is a container of excrement and it is very strong,
      such that none may abide by it.”
      And the Managers went unto their Directors and sayeth,
      “It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength.”
      And the Directors spoke among themselves, saying one to another,
      “It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”
      And the Directors went unto the Vice Presidents and sayeth unto them,
      “It promotes growth and is very powerful.”
      And the Vice Presidents went unto the President and sayeth unto him,
      “This new Plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of this
      Company, and in these Areas in particular.”
      And the President looked upon The Plan,
      And saw that it was good, and The Plan became Policy.
      And this is how Shit Happens.

    My Dad grew up in the country, so I can name at least that many breeds, but yeah, cows are pretty much once a year at the county fair.

    The overhead angle makes for a nicely dramatic shot.

      It was an unusual opportunity and I’m glad for the camera in my pocket!
