February: a month dedicated to love, lovers and all things red and heart-shaped. As Americans, we’ve taken the call to express our love in February to heart and show our love to our partners, our children – even our pets! But, what do you do if you have a few hundred dairy cows? As we close out the month, it’s a good time to recognize how dairy farmers love their animals all year long. Taking care of these bovine beauties is a love story worth telling.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly and rock around the Christmas tree.

Still not convinced? Here are four reasons why.
Ho, ho, ho! Santa is getting ready to visit Pennsylvania. Letters began pouring in at the North Pole months ago from kids asking for Hatchimals, Hot Wheels and Barbie dream houses. While dairy farmers enjoy gifts, there are more practical wishes on their lists! Here are a few things a dairy farmer would enjoy this year.
The autumn season is full of family fun – pumpkin picking, costume parties, pumpkin lattes and leaf peeping. However, for dairy farmers, autumn is also harvest season. They are hard at work ensuring that dairy cows have a store of high quality, nutritious food for the winter months.
A Cow’s Balanced Diet
While you may think of cows grazing in the pasture eating grass, today’s cows receive balanced feed that includes grass, corn and other nutrients. Exclusively pastured cows will have their diets supplemented with corn grain and hay in the winter months.
Giant feasts and decadent desserts, family and friends, full bellies and messy kitchens – ah, the holiday season is here! For most, this time of year is a time to celebrate and have fun. Does it get any better than that?
For dairy farmers, the holidays are a little bit different. Dairy farmers make sure their cows are comfortable year-round, and the holidays are no exception. While dairy farmers make time to eat turkey, drink eggnog and be merry with their loved ones, their cows still require daily care – even on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
