Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for...

Beagle, our crazy four wheel riding farm dog,

                                                                    a new fall calf,
                                                to hear the  word "cow" from the youngest
                                                        member of our dairy farm family.

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

Like the varied spots on our spotted Holstein cows, 
every group of dairy farm visitors are unique.

I love to see the expression on the face of the child or adult that 
suddenly understands how we work on the farm to produce
 a great product that their family enjoys.

                                       I'm thankful to  connect with consumers to share how
                                we work everyday to care for our animals, produce  nutritious
                                          milk and give them a feel for life on a family farm.

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

There's nothing sweeter than watching a mother with her new baby.
It's a reminder of all the many blessings that we often 
take for granted when life gets too busy.

                                 This baby was delivered without any complications this week
                               just in time to greet a group of children making a visit to the farm.

                              I'm thankful for the blessings of life that we can share with others!

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

What's not to love about sharing our dairy story?

It's not always easy to fit in a dairy farm tour but it is 
worth every minute I spend sharing with consumers
 of all ages how we work every day to produce nutritious
 milk by caring for our animals and the land we call home.

                              I'm thankful for the parents and children that brought their desire
                            to learn how we produce milk and  for sharing their beautiful smiles!
                                                   Baby calves always bring out the smiles!

Labor Day Celebration

Our Labor Day celebration started early this morning with 
the arrival of three new calves.Welcoming new life on the dairy farm
 is always  a great way to start the day!

New babies are taken to their individual calf hutch where we can monitor 
them closely, make sure they receive good nutrition and are protected from 
other members of the herd and bad weather.

                                              Caring for these babies is my daily labor of love.
                           It's a priority to make sure these calves get off to a healthy start because
                                  they will grow to become the cows that produce nutritious milk.

                                                              From down on the dairy farm,

                                                              Happy Labor Day!
