The Ohio cow cruelty video paints a horrific picture of the dairy industry. This is NOT how CA dairyman treat their cows.
We are 3rd generation dairy farmers and take great pride in our cows. They are our livelyhood and we take great measures to keep them healthy and comfortable. We supply soft bedding for them to lay in and feed them home grown food. We keep close connection with our dairy nutritionist to ensure ultimate health for our cows.
This past year we have struggled financially, losing thousands of hard earned dollars each month. In spite of this, we continue in the business because we love what we do.
If possible, take time to visit one of your local dairies to reassure yourself that not all animals are treated like those in the video. We have zero tolerance for that kind of treatment on our family farm! I know a fellow dairyman who fired their employee on the spot for mistreating a cow. We would do the same.
