Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

I learned alot about the dairy industry in Benton County when preparing for our Arkansas Heritage program. This farmer was delivering his milk to the Kraft Plant in Bentonville in 1948.  I'm thankful for the improvements in the dairy industry like refrigerated milk tanks on the dairy  farm  that keep the milk cool  before being transported to the processing plant and for our faithful  milk truck driver!

  1. Susan,I used to drag milk cans from my dads can milk bed onto the tracks at the Kraft milk plant in Bentonville ,and reload the hot clean milk cans back to their appropriate spot in the milk bed ,to return to the farms and do it all over again the next day.I always loved riding with my dad on the milk routes. I am thankful now for the bulk tanks that the milk is handled in now days.Milk hauling just gets in your blood.....not many people will buy a job that requires you to work 7 days a week and 365 days a year....LOL...
