who would be a dairy farmer?

Who would be a dairy farmer? I just took this photo and its 7.30am.  Its now a toasty warm 5 degrees and Gary has been up since 5.30 to milk. 
Is foggy and icy outside and freeeeeeeeeezing!!!!
Being the good wife that I am - I took him up a nice warm cup of tea (actually I do that every morning - rain, hail or shine).
Thank goodness my calves are now all weaned so I no longer have to go up and do those duties early in the morning.
And yes I do milk - just not this morning!
SO -
The next time you make a cuppa and add milk, or actually use milk, cheese, butter etc at all - think of the process that it took to get to your kitchen - and the cold man/woman who started the chain rolling!

Now I thought perhaps giving up dairly would help to keep you warm in your bed, but probably not really the best of ideas!!!So I'll keep glugging away!
