This simple “gadget” cache is a tribute to Wisconsin farmers whose hard work and dedication allowed our state to be named America’s Dairyland. There are about 76,800 farms in the state that produce Milk, Corn, Cattle, Soybeans, Potatoes, Cranberries, Wheat, Hogs, Chickens, and more. Wisconsin is the top producer of cheese in the nation with agriculture providing over $59 billion to Wisconsin’s economy each year. Colby cheese was invented in Colby, Wisconsin and just happens to be my all time favorite cheese. Farmers receive an average of 16 cents of every retail dollar spent on food in grocery stores and restaurants. So even though they work long, hard hours, they aren’t always paid very well, especially if bad weather affects their crops.
The cache location starts off as blacktop, then transitions to gravel, then back to very old blacktop with weeds and then weeds with blacktop and then a CACHE! Finding this cache will be easy, opening it will require a little bit of work. In order to get the combination for the lock, you need to solve the simple riddle below. Please do not force the cache open and be sure you sign the log (if you can find it)! The cache has some room for swag and has been initially filled with farm related swag.
Farmer John had 365 black and white Holsteins on his farm, 44 of which were born as twins. The cows are milked twice a day and each one produces about 70 lbs. of milk per day.
1. How many days would it take Farmer John to produce 51,100 lbs. of milk?
2. How many teats does the average cow have?
3. How many of the twins have identical markings?
Special thanks to GizFinder for allowing me to adopt this cache location!
