DairyCast update for June 30, 2010, How can you gain more milk with less feed?

Thanks for all of the comments and thoughts on ways that we can continue to bridge the gap between consumers and the dairy. I want to share a couple of the great ideas and responses your fellow producers shared with me.

Joseph's family farm hosts field trips for local school districts to their dairy during one month of the year. Mike tells the story of dairy production to consumers through an online discussion board. On behalf on the dairy community, thanks to Joseph and Mike for each of their efforts. Please continue to share what you are doing to educate others about the dairy industry with me at Feedback@DairyCast.com

Also, you may have heard me mention in DairyCast the Amaferm Beat the Heat Challenge and I want to help answer any questions you may have about it. So let's take some time today to learn more about how Amaferm can help you become more profitable and your cows more efficient. Find out all of the details of this exclusive offer for you as a DairyCast member here.

Dairy Conversations For Your Operations

Agriculture Telling its Story

  • Audio: The Human Cost of the Animal Rights Movement - Wesley J. Smith, Award winning author and Senior Fellow in Human Rights and Bioethics at the Discovery Institute, states "you are not dealing with people who want to reach accommodation with the animal industries about what is proper animal husbandry‑‑and what are proper welfare practices."
  • Summer Farming Stress - AgChat conversation on summer farming stress and thoughts on approaches to caring for animals and staff.
  • Don’t Treat Breeding Season Like It’s A Professional Sports Season - from the BeefBlog - "If you think about it, there are some basic similarities between a beef operation’s herd sires and a professional athlete. Both the sire and the athlete can be impressive physical specimens."
