Transition planning, Part I

I have been wondering what I can contribute that would be worthwhile for others within the industry, wondering if a prodigal son of the dairy industry had anything to offer. I am not sure how valuable it will be, but I am very often asked about our transition plan, how my parents are transferring the farm to my brother and I, so since it has been a relatively smooth transition I will share our experience and hopefully others will find it helpful. I think I will make it a three part series as I… Continue

Pennsylvania farm boy publishes dairy book

What does a 12-year-old kid and a cow have in common? Well, they both had to learn to drink milk right after they were born, and both received vaccination shots. Just like the child has his or her toenails trimmed, the cow’s hooves are trimmed.

The Clueless Consumer

Being born and raised on a dairy farm, I can honestly say I have  a true passion for farming. I might complain and grumble in the mornings when I walk out the door to head to the barn in the snow and rain and every kind of weather imaginable, but I couldn't imagine a life without dairy cattle or farming.
