Hi, and thanks for the welcome! I found you through Progressive Dairyman magazine…been meaning to see what it was about for ages, but like a lot of dairy farmers, my main reading time is when I get in from the barn at night and…zzzzzzz.  Finally got around to joining.  I'm a life-long dairy farmer and despite the nearly endless days, fluctuating prices, weather battles and aging body, I remain proud to dairy.  The thought of alternatively having to work with people always makes me happy to hit the barn lights in the morning and see the girls!

I found the site through the Progressive Dairymen magazine, as well as when I was searching for contact information for someone and they were on this site.  I am a field representative for a milk coop in NNY, I used to have my own dairy farm, but now I just take my son to Grammy and Pop's farm to see the cows.  I have submitted numerous adorable and promoting pictures for the magazine to publish - but no luck yet :( hopefully one day I will open the magazine and find one of my pictures there!

Take care,

Heather

Dear Mr. Cooley, I apologize it took so long to respond these past few weeks have been crazy busy! I was a student at the US Dairy Education and Training Consortium and I had the unique opportunity to publish a few blog posts about my experience with the help of the lovely Emily Caldwell.

I hope you have an excellent evening!

Progressive Dairymen magazine, and word of mouth from other dairy folks.

Hey Walt I joined because I read a lot of progressive dairymen articles at my job as a Livestock Specialist for Crystal Creek Consulting and saw the proud to dairy tab.

Making misconceptions the target

By Progressive Dairyman Editor Walt Cooley



Kelly and Christy Cunningham were determined to own their own dairy in Iowa. But when their own plans fell through, fate landed them in Atlantic, Iowa, in 2000 as managers and partners of a 2,700-cow dairy.



“When we first came, a couple of contractors we had working on the dairy said, ‘You need to get into the coffee shops and hear what people are saying about the dairy,’”… Continue
