Fried potatoes,baked potatoes,scalloped potatoes,potato soup, potato casserole--
let me count the ways we love to eat potatoes with cheese and sour cream.
My family loves potatoes but this semi-truck pile takes it to a whole new
level for my tater-lovin' farmers!
Now this is a lot of potatoes.
It was unfortunate that freezing weather created havoc for the truck driver trying to get
these Russet potatoes delivered to the potato processing plant in Oklahoma.
When the load was refused due to freeze damage , he was looking
for a place to deliver this nutritious
product rather than take it to a landfill.
It's not unusual to feed byproducts of corn or cottonseed to our dairy cows
but potatoes are not commonly available to us in Arkansas.
Potatoes are high in energy, very palatable, and can be used to replace corn in the diet.
Fortunately for us, our cows will be enjoying potatoes in their feed ration
as soon as our dairy nutritionist gets the feed ration designed for
just the right amount to include in the daily feed ration.
