Happy National Milk Day!

National Milk Day commemorates the day  in our dairy history when milk 
deliveries were made in glass bottles. Alexander Campbell of
 New York Dairy Company is believed
to be the first to make deliveries.

It's fitting to continue celebrating this event because it 
represents the ongoing changes in our industry that have brought 
convenience and a wide variety of  products to give us more 
options in feeding our families. 

From home deliveries

to the wide variety of dairy products available today,

as the saying goes,"we've come a long way,baby."

                                   I'm raising my glass to day in celebration of our dairy industry.
                                                                   Will you join me?
                                                  Happy National Milk Day!

Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

January 1 started a new year and a new term of serving in the 
position of Justice of the Peace, District 9 in Benton County.

Although this was the fourth time I have been sworn into office,
I am very thankful 
for the experience and opportunity to continue  representing 
the citizens of Benton County,


to share this moment in time with my Mother,
who encourages, supports and provides a wealth of knowledge 
from her years of service in city and county government.

to make life better for myself and  those around me.
As stated on Facebook,

From down on the dairy farm,

Happy New Year!

Christmas Blessings

Merry Christmas!
Even though we will be doing our usual everyday chores of 
feeding, milking and caring for our dairy cows and calves, 
we always find time to celebrate together as a family.

From down on the dairy farm,
we wish you joy within your home,
love within your hearts
and happiness that all comes through 
the greatest gift that was given to us...Jesus.

Christmas Blessings!

Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

                                       There's no doubt, down on the dairy farm, we are
                                                               Undeniably Dairy!
                                     This new logo is supported with our Dairy Check-off
                                      dollars to help us promote dairy through out the year.

When the farmer said he would like to have one of these projectors 
that displayed the Undeniably Dairy logo, I sprang into action, almost like
Dancer and Prancer, to order it as a Christmas gift.
It only made sense to give the gift early so it could be enjoyed.

Getting a good picture has been a little difficult but
projected on the old hay barn on Anglin Road,
it's an Undeniably Dairy awesome sight!

It's not just a logo for us, it's the life we live and love 
everyday to make sure you have cream for your coffee, 
milk on your cereal, cheese on your pizza or 
yogurt in your morning smoothie.
I'm thankful to be a dairy farmer!

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

December is full of celebrations!

I'm thankful for the happiness new life brings, 

for watching the expression of a child's first site of 
Santa riding in the community Christmas parade,

and enjoying  our dairy traditions 

                                                               down on the dairy farm.

received the title of most 
Outstanding Women's Committee for 2018
