By the weather we've been having for the last month in Northwest Arkansas,summer started a month ago! It's so hot and ohhh...,so dry.While we can't make it rain, we can provide comfort measures to make sure our cows are as comfortable as possible. Fans and sprinklers are already in use to keep the cows cool while they eat and wait to be milked and water tanks provide fresh,clean water in the feed barn and pastures.
Enjoying a nutritious smoothie made with high-quality milk seems a perfect fit for celebrating summer and June Dairy Month. I found this tasty recipe at http://www.milkmustache.com.
2 tbsp strawberry preserves
2 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup ice cubes
1 cup lowfat or fat free milk
In a blender combine all ingredients. Cover and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
