Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

Dairy farmers support practices that make economic sense,
 help the environment and are socially responsible to our
 communities and our world. 

 A great example of this farming  practice statement is the hay crop that
 we are cutting this week has been fertilized with the manure produced
 by our cows. Utilization of cow manure increases the water retention of 
the soil, adds needed nutrients for crop growth and protects
the water quality of our farm by following our farm plan 
designed for environmental protection.

I'm thankful for the hay crop that not only feeds the cows but
for the dairy farmers that work everyday using best management 
 practices to  insure that our land will be left in better shape for the
next generation of  family farmers.
