How to Thank a Farmer This Holiday Season

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.

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.
