My name is Ana Leigh Ruiz. My passion for life started with dairy farming. I grew up on a small family farm, caring for a bunch of goofy, black and white, four-legged creatures called Holsteins! I studied the science of caring for dairy cattle through college at South Dakota State University, my life has been centered around the best care for dairy animals. I am also grateful that I had the opportunity to care for a couple of God’s very vulnerable children. I am grateful now to be a mother and know that my calling is to stand up and speak out for the helpless in our world whether it be the orphans or the animals. Each day I spur others on toward all that their maker is calling them to be!
I am passionate about my faith, family, people and leadership. Other topics that I get overly excited and talkative about include animal welfare, proactive veterinary medical care of the dairy cow, dairy genetics and breeding, dairy management, dairy training, dairy farming, hoof health care, dairy nutrition, learning how to make dairy systems more efficient, farm succession, entrepreneurship, bucking bulls, violin, guitar, biking, video production, cooking, hunting, networking, learning and much more! You could find me writing about all of them or something new any time! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, God Bless!
