And the winner is ...

It's always fun to give out prizes for a contest. The hard part is that there is only one first place. We had a great response at the polls, 243 votes, and the final numbers were really close. In fact we had a tie for third place. Without further adieu, here are the final results for Contest 2010.

First place goes to Leslie Ann Batistich, who won the Proud to Dairy engraved iPod nano.

Second place goes to Katherine… Continue

Brand New Baby Calf

We never know what we might find on any given day, going to work with Dominic. This morning, as we were feeding the Dry Cows (cows that are not milking at the moment) I happened to look over and spotted a Mama cow with some afterbirth ..............read more.......

Ohio Farm Bureau is a proud advocate

Everyone likes an advocate, especially if they are advocating for you. One advocate group has repeatedly earned its reputation of helping farmers. Ohio Farm Bureau (OFB) has been instrumental in working with farmers across agriculture to promote ag, advocate for farmers and lobby legislation to improve farming; not hurt it. Most recently OFB had their hands full dealing with media asking questions about the Mercy For Animals footage that was taken on an Ohio… Continue

Why do we do this again?!

Another bill, another thing that needs fixed, another cow with mastitis. And not a big enough milk check to cover all of those expenses. I keep praying for a break to this vicious cycle. I know we are not alone. The majority of dairy farmers across the country are suffering and going through the same thing. Some days I feel as if we're at our breaking point.
