Mother nature

The guys at the mill call her Mother Nature. They do so because she will not feed her hogs chlortetracycline (an antibiotic), because she will not feed her turkeys, geese, and ducks amprolium (a coccidiostat), because she pays a premium for a natural calcium supplement (maerl derived from red algae) to be blended with fertilizer for her fields, and because they know that she would rather use her clothes line than the electric dryer (even in the dead of winter). They call her Mother Nature because she’s different and she doesn’t laugh at their jokes. Mother Nature gazed with satisfaction upon her namesake today.
