COWS IN THE SNOW 22637 KM / DAY 336 / FEBRUARY 15, 2012 - 11:45 / TROUT LAKE, WA, USA
There is quite a bit of snow in Trout Lake, a tiny settlement in Washington state. There are many dairy farms here with thousands of cows. One of them is the organic dairy farm Mountain Meadow Dairy which employs Christian Serratos, who came to the US in 2001. Six years ago he returned to Mexico to bring his wife with him to Washington. Their two children are born here in the US, so they`re American citizens, while Christian and his wife remain undocumented.
The dairy farm is tough work says Christian. When I ask him about his future dreams he says: `I would like to return to Mexico, but the kids are going to school here so it`s hard. I would like to start my own farm here, but without papers it`s impossible`. He puts on his work clothes and has to run, the cows need to be milked.
