The local station affiliate The BIG 98 hit him up asking him if he'd be up for hosting a cow milking competition at the Nashville Fair. Along with hosting competitors, country artist Hannah Ellis would be there to participate and perform. Raymundo said the cow milking competition got real very quickly when he started seeing all of the milking happening and the cows going to the bathroom at the same time. Noting it was a very hilarious experience for him.

Ellis was participating in the cow milking when one of the cows was not having it and started bucking. During the bucking, the cow hit Ellis and knocked her backward a few feet. Raymundo said the whole crowd went silent, but then Ellis got up and said she was fine. Talking with her, Raymundo found out she's very competitive so she didn't want to let that stop her from the competition.

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
