V Is For Veterinarian

I'm taking you on a journey from A to Z through the land of dairy! 
There's no need to pack your bags, just come along!

  V Is For Veterinarian

Just like you and your family visit a doctor, our veterinarian visits our farm so our cows can receive regular veterinary care, including periodic check-ups, preventative vaccinations and prompt treatment of illness.

Sometimes it’s necessary for us to treat cows with antibiotics when they are ill (just like you and your children sometimes need medication when you are sick). All milk is strictly tested for antibiotics on our farm and again at the processing plant. Any milk that tests positive for antibiotics (which is less than one in every 3,000 tankers) is immediately dumped and never enters the food supply. If antibiotics are found during this testing, the farmer responsible for the milk is required to pay for the full tanker of milk, and runs the risk of losing their license to produce milk. We take the safety of our milk VERY SERIOUSLY! Milk and dairy products are among the most stringently regulated foods in this country, and we as dairy farmers are proud of that.

I am making a commitment to share as much as I can with you each day this month, about the life of our dairy farm family including what we do, how we share our passion for dairy, and dairy foods we enjoy.

 See you here tomorrow...W Is For Websites
