Hi Walt, We have not gotten any cows yet and at this point it appears we may be selling the farm. We have tried to refinance, find investors to help us through this rough spot but have not found anyone that would help. So the future is up in the air...we plan to plant crops again this year but unsure of what the future holds...prices are horrible right now so cutting the input cost is a primary factor.

Hi Walt! I found you after reading about your website in a dairy publication, I believe in Hoards. I work for a dairy farmer check-off program in the South and am trying to learn as much about dairy production as I can.

Hi Walt,

I was looking at compliance around effluent and wondered what regulations farmers in America are bound by. We have govt legislation with Fonterra (our co-op) as a clean streams accord. We must prepare nutrient budgets showing how we comply.

I went looking for a correspondent and Voila! your web site popped up on google.

Hi Walt!

We found you after my husband read an article in one of his dairy magazines. We are looking to get back into dairy after not having cows for 2 years. He read the article about the family looking to sell their herd to someone. He still gets up at 4:30 a.m. and we got out of it due an earth current problem on our farm.

Hello! We have recently installed Lely robotic milkers and was just looking for more comments from other producers and found this.

Hello, I have been receiving your magazine for years and decided I would sign up; I manage a calf ranch in the central valley of California and find the articles on calf raising very useful

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
