Vicky Pike: Solar eclipse presents special problems for ranchers

Miss Victoria states a question on every cattlewoman's mind
Comments re Article 91683 KYEM holds FEMA eclipse tabletop exercise

By Victoria Pike

So I was just watching the news and we need special glasses to view the solar eclipse.

Now my question is: Where do we get solar eclipse glasses for the girls?

With the time for this event fastly approaching, what is a farmer to do to protect her herd of distinguished bovine, cows for those not acquainted with the girls?

I hope someone out there might know the answer to this pressing question.

Remember it is 96 outside and I may have been out in the heat a little too long today making sure all my cattle have plenty of water.

However, I think this is worth asking.

We can't just go out and tell them not to look up. --Victoria Pike
