About Dairy Moos
Welcome to the Dairy Moos blog! Dairy Moos is a play on words, creating a fun environment for dairy news (moos). The goal of this blog is to share “moosworthy information” (newsworthy information) about the dairy farming today and important happening on our dairy farm. Hopefully this blog will help people learn about various aspects of dairy and what happens on a real dairy farm. Visit regularly for new postings
I am a 3rd generation dairyman in California, and our dairy farm is a reflection of the American dream. My grandfather came to America from Europe with hardly anything except his appreciation for hard work and was able to start his own dairy farm to start producing high quality, nutritious milk.
Today, I am actively taking part in the farms daily responsibilities and am excited to be following in the footsteps of my dad and grandpa. I’m well qualified to be in the dairy industry, and have degrees in dairy science, and dairy processing (yes, dairy science is a real degree).
Get My Perspective
Many people today believe that dairy farming has been taken over by large corporations, but a recent study done shows that most dairies are family owned. In fact, 99% of dairy farms in California are family owned and operated. My whole family is involved on the dairy. My sisters are take care of the baby calves, and my brothers and I take care of the cows. There are eight kids in our family, so the dairy is definitely a family affair!
Milk is one of life’s most nutritious foods. Yet the internet has been spreading false ideas and misconceptions. That’s why I started writing this blog, to correct the information and post truth.
