Christmas is just around the corner. It’s a time for family, friends and celebrating the holiday season. For most, it is a day off to relax and enjoy the holiday. But, dairy farmers cannot take a day off. Their farms operate 365 days a year so you can have food on your table three times a day, even Christmas day. Taking that into consideration, it is interesting to what has changed in Christmas past to today for dairy farmers.

Over the last few months our country has experienced a slew of natural disasters. People have lost homes, their livelihoods and much more. Each of these natural disasters has had unique effects on that area’s agriculture as well.
