Frequently Asked Questions
What do the cows eat?
Our farmers know that healthy cows produce the best quality milk. Proper animal care practices like providing a healthy diet benefits the farmer, cow, and ultimately you, the consumer. At each farm, an animal nutritionist helps the farmer customize a healthy diet of forages and grains for their cows that meets their requirements for health and milk production. The forage portion of a cow’s food is slightly different on each farm, but usually includes grass, alfalfa, and likely some corn silage. The grain portion is a mixture of grains, including corn and barley. Cows are also given a vitamin/mineral supplement to support long-term health. Our dairy farmers all have a commitment to quality, and that means taking good care of their cows and the land, because not only is it their livelihood, but it is also the right thing to do.
