Guest Blog: The Word Milk

Guest blogger, Jessica Peters, is a 5th generation dairy farmer in northwest Pennsylvania.

Dairy farmers are hard-working people who like straight-talk. Every day, they are putting in long-hours working on the farm to produce top-quality milk. So, when people call the milk’s nutrition or safety into question, it causes them concern. There’s so much more behind the word milk.

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.
