I live in the Pacific Northwest on a century-old dairy farm with my husband, that we now employ to raise grass-fed lamb. My “day job” is as an engineering project manager in the medical device industry; I have a degree in Electrical Engineering and spent many years writing software. I have two Border Collies (once four), which were the original motivation for the farm. They needed livestock on which to practice their skills, which I occasionally enjoyed putting to the ultimate test at local stockdog trials. But now that I have a farm, I find there is little time to train for trials and travel, so the dogs just do useful work these days! We also have two livestock guardian dogs, chickens, and of course, the sheep. Every day is an adventure on a farm!
