Not only does she have practical experience with livestock, but also theoretical skills. She treats her responsibilities with great respect. Each year, she works 1 hectare of land together with her family. Her spouse and sons help her there. She now has 2 cows, 2 calves and has a small barn where she has everything required to keep cattle.
