Hey Eric, check out my blog at http://the-milk-can.blogspot.com
I'm trying to get more followers,even farmers, then they can send the link to their friends and relatives who don't farm, which is what I've been doing. Hope you like it.

Hola.
Well, we had a terrible drought this year, so corn crops are not as good as it should be. Now we are having rains, finally; although it is to late for most of corn crops, it is possible to get oats as forage.
Now, the milk market is better than last months, the price is not to big yet(about US 14.30 per hundred pounds), but it is better now.

Hola.
We went on the Alta Showcase Tour, we visited several farms from Detroit, MI to Minneapolis, MN.
Of course, we stood in Madison for the WDE (my picture is from there), I really enjoyed and learned a lot of improvements to do in our farm. Everybody was very nice to us (there was people from many countries, mainly from Latinamérica), I'ld like to pay back the hospitality!

Hello.
In summer we grow corn, in winter triticale (cross between wheat and rye), our winter is not too cold; all for silage. We have to irrigate, our rain season is in summer, although this year is beeing too dry, most of not irrigated land has not been seeded yet, it will be a problem.
We buy the alfalfa hay and all the grain: steam flaked corn and soy meal basically.
This year many dairy farrms could be closing, the crisis affects us too very hard.
I've been in Wisconsin, I've visited some farms, I remember the Bo-Mas Dairy.

Hello.
This is a very dairy area. Jalisco state is the 1st milk producer in México, mainly with family dairy farms (average 54 milking cows) although there are several dairy farms milking over 1'000 cows. Where we are located most of the farms milk between 100 and 500 cows, but there are a lot of small dairy farmers and a couple of farms milking over 2'000 cows.
Aguascalientes state is the 5th milk producer, but the state is small and the systems are more industrial. Although there are some family small farms, the most of the dairy farms have between 200 and 600 cows, and some with more than 1'500 milking cows.

Yes, I do milk cows! Actually, I am going to school right now, (and for the next 3 years) but when I am home, like now for the summer, I work on my family's dairy. :)

No I don't milk cows. I actually work for Progressive Dairy Publishing in their circulation department

Hello Eric - No, my family does not milk cows - my wife grew up on a Guernsey dairy in Iowa, we still have the farm on lease to a neighbor and the cows are gone. I and my wife both work in agri-marketing in the Milwaukee area; my company has quite a few dairy clients. So dairy is our life.

We are milking around 260 cows

We live in Richland County, and we are probably the 5th biggest herd. There is alot of dairy in our county and all sizes. The biggest is under 1000 head though. There is a farm on that YouTube video that is in our county, and a friend of ours.
