Breaking news – farmer works in snow

An Ormondville farmer didn’t let the snow stop him from working on the farm during the inclement weather on July 13, 2017.

It’s the caption for a photo of a farmer feeding out in the snow.

As the Facebook friend whose post alerted me to it asked:

. . .  what was he gonna do stay inside and leave his stock without feed? ‬ go away to the islands on a holiday? Call the cattle and tell them that s/he wasn’t coming in today?

Sigh.

How could someone not know that farmers, like those in quite a few other occupations, not only continue to work in inclement weather, they have to work harder and often not in spite of it but because of it?

UPDATE:

The caption has been updated to:
