We love our cows and treat them with kindness and respect. The cows that are raised on our family farms enjoy fine weather, open pasture, a diet of fresh grass, hay and grains, and clean bedding when they go to sleep. After all, healthy cows are happy cows and we know that their quality of life directly impacts the quality and taste of their milk.
I was raised on a dairy farm and know how to treat dairy cows gently and respectfully. I don’t use anything but my voice to move them around. I guess you could say I’m a cow whisperer.
