Not their first rodeo

The Peterson Brothers love music and enjoy making musical covers and parodies.

But then you hear the familiar percussion from Queen’s “We Will Rock You”. Dairy cows bop their heads in time to the music while the sweeping of a broom adds a unique sound to the popular melody.

From the opening lyrics of this cover, viewers are treated to a song that celebrates and teaches what being a dairy farmer is all about. Two daily milkings to fill our cups with essential vitamins and nutrients, the song shows how proud this family is of the work they do.

The fail end of the music video is backed by an incredible guitar solo that is paired up with acapella stomping and clapping. While this solo plays out, the video shows shots of the hard work that farmers go through every day for their cows. From cleaning to passing out feed.
