Dairy farmers, churches partner to fight hunger

Hi, Milk Fans

Five dairy farms in Cayuga County (Aurora Ridge Dairy, Willet Dairy, Sunnyside Farm, Scipio Springs Dairy and Oakwood Farms) and three Ithaca area churches created a local partnership, dubbed “Adopt a Cow,” to raise funds to rebuild cattle herds in Mozambique.

Hi, Cheese fans

Join www.dairy-info.org as a member.

You get a free guide that will make you sound like a cheese guru – yes, all those gourmet terms used in judging cheese!  The guide is designed in PDF format to be printed and has enough space to tick certain terms and in that way by writing the name, age and date at the top, you have a very accurate record of that cheese.

Dairy cooperatives face July 1 deadline on CWT

“Dairy cooperatives have until July 1 to decide if they will pay a dime assessment to belong to Cooperatives Working Together.

CWT, a voluntary self-help program started by the dairy industry in July 2003, offers herd retirement and export assistance programs in an effort to control the US milk supply and keep farm milk prices stable. ”

Check for yourself if you think this is viable elsewhere in the world, by clicking on the following link:

Balanced Milk

Hi, Milk Fans

You know why I always say milk is balanced?

Well if you look at the composition of cow and goat milk, you will see that the fat, protein and lactose(carbohydrate) is more balanced than in almost any other food.  This helps regulate blood sugar and gives you all-round nourishment throughout the day.

Kind regards,
