June is National Dairy Month. To celebrate dairy, my June blog postings will focus on dairy products, special events on our farm, how milk quality starts on the farm, and dairy fun facts. So tune in every Tuesday in June for a new dairy blog!

  1. This post is filled with *lots* of great stuff! I'm heading off to visit a dairy farm for the first time ever, so it looks like I picked a great month to do it!

  2. As a person who has grown up on a Dairy Farm, I am very excited that you are taking the opportunity to see how a dairy farm works and, more importantly, how dairy farmers work hard to care for their cows and provide nutritious, wholesome milk. Hope you had a great experience at the farm!

  3. Thanks for the comments Rebecca and Johanna. I agree that it's neat Rebecca is visiting a farm. Good for you for taking the time to go to a dairy farm and meet a dairy farmer!
