When we have visitors to the farm we often get the
question about how many times do we milk everyday.
Our cows are milked twice a day beginning at seven in the
morning and seven at night. Between milking times,
the cows are eating their balanced feed ration that is made available
in the barn and pasture , drinking water and resting in the pasture.
All the procedures for both milking times are the same but
the evening milking does have a more calm atmosphere with
less people working outside,the setting of the sun and the cool of the
evening bringing a refreshment from the heat of the day.
I'm thankful for these dairy barn night lights
that are a sign that the milking of cows
continues on our family farmand
our communities and across our nation,
dairy farm families like us are working day and night
to provide nutritious, high-quality milk.
