Happy June Dairy Month!
Since 1939, June Dairy Month has been celebrated to promote
and highlight the important health benefits that milk, yogurt
and cheese provide and honor the farmers for their daily work that
provides a steady supply of dairy products.
You would be surprised how many different jobs we may perform
in one day down on the dairy farm to make sure we are producing
the highest quality milk .
On this June day,
I was the gate woman as we sorted cattle in preparation for
turning the next group of pregnant cows from the
milking herd to the dry pasture to rest for 60 days before calving.
With sunshine and dry conditions,
we've celebrated many hours in the hay field
producing quality hay that is used to feed our dairy
and beef cows.
As we continue celebrating the goodness of dairy ,
I'm thankful for my dairy farm family that works together
everyday to feed and care for our dairy animals
for the dairy cows that produce high quality milk
for your family and mine.
