While some people are mastering nanotechnologies and launching satellites, others live an old life or a bit worse.
Only about 100 people remained in the village of Novoyemakovka in the Omsk region. They have no Internet or mobile connection, and guest workers do not stay there for long. But they have a farm where villagers work.
But we want to tell about one Russian woman, Lubov Andreevna Lavrentyeva, the pride of the whole region, repeated winner of various livestock competitions.
She has been a milkmaid for thirty years. Each morning she comes to the farm. Even on Sundays and Saturdays. It’s always the same: rubber boots, manure, cold. Cows are to be milked daily.
Morning milking starts at 5:30.
Lubov Andreevna and her partner Lena should milk 120 cows! They all have names and the women remember them all.
Lubov Andreevna says she likes her profession and it’s already hard to work being not so young.
In 3,5 hours they are done with milkng. If it’s colder than -20C (-4F) the cows do not walk and the women may leave earlier.
Men work at the farm too. They are responsible for bringing hay and other food. But almost all of them like to drink.
