This And That Thursday (ok...Friday)

News Years Resolution:
1. Prepare blog posts 2 days before the publish date.

Revised New Years Resolution
1. Prepare blog posts  1 day before the publish date.

Re-Revised New Years Resolution
1. Prepare blog posts  2   right before I hit the "publish" button.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that- here's what we've been up to. 
Sara, on the right, ready for calf feeding.

As we near the end of the second week of January, I am reminded that we dairy farmers are a pretty strong bunch of son-of-a-guns! With the recent -40 to -60 degree wind chills we have been experiencing here in Minnesota, we still took on the task of taking good care of our herd so that you, and us, can continue to enjoy milk on our cereal each morning. Needless to say, we are excited about the 32 degrees forecast for today. So for the next few days anyway, it's time to peel off a layer of winter clothing and get back outside.

Did you know...

Lastly, I recently read in the December 2013 Food Network magazine that this winter Milwaukee, Wisconsin officials plan to fight icy roads with cheese. The Department of Public Works will mix rock salt with brine left over from cheese making. The new recipe stems from concern over the long term damage rock salt has on the roads and the environment. Ahhh...the power of cheese! Has anyone heard how this new formula is working? Wisconsinites speak up, please!

Is one of your New Years Resolutions to eat healthier?
