I’ve Got Moos For You. Vol 9.

Stuff I read about this week that you should care about 7/14/2017

“How much for a deep tissue massage?” Cows at the spa

HuffPost put up a video on Facebook showcasing how farmers pamper their ladies. From brushes, to fans to misting, it’s like a spa day every day. Farmers put a lot of work and time into making sure their cows are always comfortable. Happy cows = healthy milk production. Boys, take notes.

“Hi-ho, hi-ho off to work we go” Future HP Hood employees

HP Hood is a dairy processor located in Western New York. Recently, they purchased a yogurt plant with plans to put in over $200 million worth of renovations. They’re also saying that this should create 230 new jobs over the next five years. Score 1 for the local community. Always good, even in a new hood.

“That’s cool, but what’s next?” Innovators at Chobani

Kai Sacher is a food engineer with Chobani® (previously worked at Dannon), and is also the brains behind their latest product ‘Chobani Smooth’ that has hit the shelves. Chobani has always been a leading brand in the U.S. for greek yogurt (accounting for 38% of greek yogurt sales in a 13 week period that ended June 17), however they’re  also seeing success with their new product. Sacher notes that all Chobani retailers are doing more than asking for Smooth – they’re asking to carry and sell it in every available flavor: vanilla, cherry, blueberry, strawberry and peach. According to Sacher, it’s the best thing since they put fruit at the bottom of their yogurt… we’ll see about that.

OPINION PIECE

The father of Facebook visited some farms and posted about it. Texas native and ag communications guru Mollie Dreibrodt has something to say about it. Check out her LinkedIn blog post here.
