It makes no difference how many cows you milk--50,300, or 1000--the ultimate goal of every dairy farmer is to produce safe,high quality milk and dairy products by taking good care of the cows and the land. On a recent visit to Scott Brothers Dairy located in San Jacinto,California, I enjoyed meeting Brad Scott's family and listening to the information provided by Brad during a tour of his family's dairy farm. Crops are raised on the land that surrounds the 1000 cow dairy. Every decision in managing the farm requires consideration of environmental quality. Innovative methods of using reclaimed water from the nearby urban population is just one of the best management practices in place for protecting the environment and utilizing available water. Although the landscape is extremely different than Arkansas, it is quite beautiful with the mountains surrounding the dairy.
Scott Brothers Dairy also has its own processing facility located in Chino,California. I loved the art work on their milk transport truck and on one of the trailers that was parked on the farm! You can find more information about the variety of products that are manufactured by Scott Brothers Dairy and the history of their family operation at http://www.scottbrothers.com/.
It's obvious--dairy farmers love to promote a great product with a smile!
