Cows say Moooooooo

standard November 5, 2010 6 responses

Today I headed to the California Central Valley with a busload of delightful mommy bloggers to go say hi to some cows and to tour two dairy farms. I went up with a wide open mind, just excited to see what I could learn and more than a little curious to see where the milk I drink daily comes from.

I also wanted to see if California cows really are happy cows.

As far as I could see, the cows are perfectly content and they make boatloads of milk (7-10lbs of milk per day per cow. Puts my measly pumping records to shame.)

The issue on organic mild vs rBST free milk vs “conventional” milk deserves a little more research, so I’ll hold off on posting about that for a few days. In the meantime I leave you with this.

Happy cows say mooooo and their milk makes exceptionally good cheese.

Happy cows say moooo. Especially the babies.
