What is one of the dairy farmer's most important jobs?
Animal care is one of the most important aspects of a dairy farmer's job. We spend the majority of our time everyday feeding our dairy cows and calves and monitoring the amount that is consumed.
From my front porch, I often enjoy watching the soon to be mama cows cleaning up the grain mixture in the feed wagons.
Even though these pregnant cows receive a special designed diet daily and have access to hay at all times, they never turn away a good meal or a tasty treat!
