This was my first day of the trip where I felt genuinely uncomfortable and afraid. The entire atmosphere of the cattle farm and the day just did not feel right to me. It is difficult to explain in words but I really just did not feel right. Despite this, I really tried to be brave and get up on the ledge and vaccinate. I think that the stress of the cows probably had me stressed as well. I hated watching them defecate on each other and squish each other against the wooden enclosure. When I vaccinated my first cow, she was the first one to pull away and kind of freak out. Luckily, I handled the situation as best as I could and let go of the needle. This day sort of showed me that a career in production animal medicine may not be right for me.
