I’ve Got Moos For You. Vol 31.

Stuff I read about this week that you should care about 1/28/2018.

“Thanks for the help!” Wisconsin dairy farming family

Earlier this month, the Dettmann family in Wisconsin had to deal with something not so fun. Their parlor (where the cows get milked) caught on fire. Attached to the parlor was the freestall barn, which is where their 500 cows ‘lived’ most of the time. So they could focus on rebuilding their new parlor post fire, two neighbor farms are working together to lend a hand and tare taking care of the Dettmann’s animals until they’re able to milk them at their own farm. Good deed of their year – check.

“Ready for your close up?” The director of Holstein America 

RFD-TV has a brand new show starting February 8, 2018 called Holstein America. This show will be put on on by Holstein Association USA and is showcasing dairy farmers from across the country and the work they do. Holstein Association USA CEO John Meyer was quoted in this article saying “The Holstein breed’s story is among the most successful in U.S. agriculture — and it’s written by generations of passionate dairy producers. We’re honored to introduce these individuals and families in the Holstein America series.” Start planning your viewing party today.

**Holsteins are the black and white dairy cows. AKA the best ones (or my personal favorite, at least). 

“Only if it tastes good.” People buying yogurt.

Personally, I buy whatever yogurt has the coolest packaging. Apparently, everyone else is buying whatever they believe tastes the best… weird. According to this report, flavor was ranked as ‘most important’ by grocery shoppers. Berry and vanilla came out on top as consumer favorites, while spicy yogurts didn’t get quite as much love. I guess not everyone is a fan of the mexican chocolate flavor noosa makes…
