Wait 'Til the Cows Come Home
Farm Country Rambles with a New York Dairyman

Richard Triumpho

Cloth $19.95    |    0-9717214-0-8    |   2005

A delightful book recording the pleasures and pitfalls of daily life on the family dairy farms in upstate New York.

Part biography, part chronicle of social life and customs, part memoir, the pieces in this collection draw heavily on Richard Triumpho's experiences as a farmer, but he also wrote for Hoard's Dairyman on a wealth of other subjects, including his trips to Russia, China, Switzerland and New Zealand. The essays here reflect the diversity of his interests, from artificial breeding in dairy cows to taking a banya (steam bath) in Siberia.

Praise for Triumpho's writing:

"His writing captures . . . the essence of agriculture and the rural environmentdashtying them back to literature and poetry."
dash Walter J. Clark, Dean Emeritus, SUNY Cobleskill, College of Agriculture

"Fine writing . . . brings back memories of my own country boyhood."
dash Sigurd F. Olson, author of The Singing Wilderness and past president National Parks Association

Richard Triumpho lives near St. Johnsville, New York, on the family dairy farm where he was born. He is a regular contributor to Hoard's Dairyman magazine and author of No Richer Gift and Round Barns of New York State, the latter published by Syracuse University Press.
