I grow sweet cherries in Hollister, California, with the assistance of Jan, my wife of 47 years. Without her, I, like other men in agriculture, would not be able to do the work that we do and the work would lack 'meaning'.

Thank you, Ladies.]]>

Copper oxide has a very low absorption co-efficient in dairy cows. NRC gives an absorption coefficient of inorganic copper as 1 to 5%, with copper sulfate having the greatest absorption of the inorganic sources. Since other inorganic minerals can antagonize copper as well (zinc when greater than 40 ppm and molybedum, sulfur when present together), the best course of action is to feed an organic trace mineral. The chelated sources of organic trace minerals have research that they perform with dietary antagonism present. Thus, why I suggested that option.”]]>

I wonder if this would make a difference over there? Also watch out for a product called biochar(charcoal) as this is what people are calling charcoal fed to livestock.
But interestingly, science is saying that 1% charcoal in cattle feed can give up to 50% decrease in methane, increase in milk, growth and health.
I wonder if they have made a grave mistake? As the emissions implications are incredible(whether global warming is happening or not).]]>

What a great write-up on the show! The picture of the young lady receiving the donated Brown Swiss heifer was priceless!

I know they say that "a picture is equivalent to a thousand words," but her expression of joy just said it all!

Nice work!

To give you an example of labor vs cost savings. The Santa Rosa Equestrian facility in northern California reported that they save about $200 - per day - on their feed bill. They produce about 1 ton of fodder per day and probably spend about 2 hours of labor. I don't know about you, but I sure don't make $100/hr.]]>

I am an old retired beef cattle rancher living in Northern B.C. I have been trying to find Guernsey breeders here and in Alberta but with no luck. Finally came across the Vanderveen name by poking around in Washington on the net.
I am looking for a young Guernsey heifer to raise for milk for ourselves and grandchildren. We would likely A.I. her when she is old enough. Do you happen to have anything available or know of anyone who does? We're not in any hurry.

Regards,

Ron Enderlin]]>

Excellant data and explanation.
It was the toughest decision I ever made to start crossbreeding in my 1800 cow herd in South Dakota.
I got so tired of calving,health, fertility, lameness and down cow problems that I gave it a try. Three years later the workers fell in love with how easy it was to manage crosses vs. Holsteins and we never looked back.

How long will it be before we see a majority of crossbred
dairy cattle?

Thanks again,

Howard Whitmore]]>

There are too many conspiracy theorists out there, plus the "democratization" of the internet that gives equal air time, so to speak, to every point of view. The conspiracy theorists will then tell you how the USDA, ADA and FDA are sooo awful and bad. To those people, I say go to a third world country and see how long you last under those conditions. We are blessed to have the oversight we do have in this country. We are also blessed by those like you who continue to farm and provide us with excellent food.

MOOMilk is not a co-op. It's an L3C corporation, a low-profit corporation with a social purpose. While such a concept may give Rush Limbaugh fits, it's what has allowed MOOMilk to continue to this point.

In a co-op, all the invested capital has to come from the members. That certainly wasn't a possibility in the case of our very small farms. In addition, we wanted to create a model where we provided a profitable market for farmers, not a collective designed to sell their milk. While our farmers have a common 10-percent ownership in the company, we also buy their milk at arm's length, just as the case with for-profit dairies.

In a regular LLC, all the invested capital has to come from profit-making sources. But an L3C allows non-profits to make what are called Program-Related Investments (PRIs), letting non-profits as well as for-profit investors (we have both) have some ownership and direction in the company. If the company fails, the non-profit investment becomes a one-time grant. But if MOOMilk is successful, it can eventually buy the membership units back from the non-profit investors, letting them reuse their money for other ventures which meet their designated purposes.

It was only through the use of PRIs that MOOMilk was able to stay afloat over the past few years. During that time, private investors were watching our progress. One of them saw that we had potential, and room in the marketplace to expand to the point of profitability. That private investor recently put $3 million into MOOMilk.

Our little company has made it this far due to some very hard-working family farms, as well as both non-profit and for-profit investors.]]>

Study after study shows agriculture as the primary polluter of water and contributor to the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico.

Farmers and ranchers must regain the public's confidence by being good actors toward our environment.

I would hate to see a great divide between the consumer and the our valuable farmers and ranchers.

Knowing that the program can be shut down, I regularly run milk to AgSource (formerly Genex) for SCC milk counts plus I participate in DHI. Under the Small Herd Exemption, cows can have up to 500,000 SCC and goats 750,000. My vet works for a large dairy in Jerome and has a part-time private practice. He has told me that anything over 200,000 is mastitis. Yes, he is right. Anytime one of my does has a SCC over that, I run milk to Udder Health in Jerome and sure enough, has something going on.

Recently I purchased a doe valued at $1500 because she had a coliform mastitis from improperly cleaned milk equipment. She was dried up with no treatment. When she freshened a couple mths later in Jan, she again had the coliform mastitis. The dairy didn't want to mess with her and I purchased her for $250. My vet had me run milk to Udder Health. It came back as gram negative Pseudomonas Aeruginosa 30. My vet had me treat with Spectramast for 6 days. She is now clear & her production has increased. My vet is very cautious about using antibiotics, but will do so when necessary.

SCC milk tests are a reasonable cost $7 for what few goats I have. The Udder Health costs are a bit more for each half, but still well worth the cost of testing to have peace of mind. Most of my goats show no signs of sub-clinical mastitis when they do have it. Fortunately, I don't have mastitis very often.]]>

The sprouts may be more digestible than the grain you put in, but I have not seen a Land Grant College study on that.

Finally there is a huge amount of labor involved. When you don't count your labor as worth anything it seems okay, but if you spend the same amount of time on a job in town you would make a lot more.]]>

Greater than 35% of respondents are included in this category. I think this likely includes accepting an annual stipend as a graduate research assistant, or graduate teaching assistant.

Pretty clear that “advanced education” skews the summary of salary: Removing from consideration those who pursued advanced education, the average salaries for both genders increases - and becomes much more equitable.]]>

Balancing a ration with DM doesn't work because it is all water. The plant is utilizing stored energy to produce the fodder. That is why starch decreases. The scientific literature needs to be reviewed.]]>

When you detect a cow with mastitis, identify the affected cow and move her to an appropriate hospital pen so that the animal health managers on the dairy can follow the standard operating procedure that has been developed for that particular herd. Each farm should have protocols developed that include information about the history of the cow, the severity of mastitis, instructions on which cows should be cultured, how to record treatment information in the cow’s permanent record, and how to identify treated cows. The treatment protocols should be developed with input from the herd veterinarian and should be reviewed on a regular basis.]]>

Como ordeñador, es crítico observar los síntomas de mastitis como son cuartos hinchados o duros, y hacer el despunte para la observación de leche anormal antes de aplicar la máquina de ordeño.

Cuando Ud. detecta una vaca con mastitis, identifique la vaca afectada y muévala a un corral apropiado de hospital de manera que el personal de manejo de salud animal de la lechería pueda seguir los protocolos estandarizados desarrollados para esa lechería. Cada lechería debe tener protocolos que incluyen información sobre el historial de la vaca, la severidad de la mastitis, e instrucciones de qué vacas se deben obtener cultivos, cómo registrar los tratamientos en el registro permanente de la vaca y cómo identificar vacas tratadas. Los protocolos de tratamiento deben ser desarrollados con el apoyo del veterinario del hato y deben ser revisados regularmente.]]>

- Uno una fermentación bacteriana por inadecuada higiene lo que puede causar ácido láctico a partir de la lactosa de la leche.

- Segundo elevada producción de ácidos naturales de la leche. Se comprueba por descarte, detectando – por titulación – la ausencia de ácido láctico en la leche.

Probablemente tenemos deficiencias y desbalances nutricionales que se registran con problemas metabólicos.

Lo primero que hay que ver es: Si hay presencia de calostro en la leche o mastitis especialmente si el conteo de células somáticas del total del tanque exceden SCC400000.

Lo segundo a revisar son las horas de ordeño. Si hay muchos cambios entre el verano y el invierno o si cambian de 2 a tres ordeños o hasta cuatro es importante.

Finalmente mande a evaluar los componentes nutricionales de la dieta completa especialmente cuando los animales están en estrés por calos, añada logares donde las vacas puedan beber agua apenas salen de la sala de ordeño, sería bueno que no tengan que caminar más de 5 a 10 metros antes de encontrar agua.]]>

I say yes. Tail docking should be an approved animal care standard on dairy farms. I just find it interesting how people that do not milk cows two or three times a day for a living, think that they are an authority on what kind of practices we use to run our businesses.

I don't tell you how to publish or edit your magazine. How could I, what do I know about being an editor, or publisher?

Jerry Kozak has no business telling us how to manage the tails on our cows.

Are the cows complaining? If they are, they are not complaining to us!

We, by the way, are the ones who feed them, keep them comfortable with fresh clean bedding and vaccinate them to prevent disease and treat them and care for them when they are sick. Why would we do anything to harm them? They are our bread and butter, and we are their providers.

I personally feel that if everybody would just mind their own business just a little bit more,and not always try to tell others how to run other businesses, maybe, just maybe we wouldn't have these issues that put others against us!]]>

Presently, I am living in California which prides itself in its raw food movement and liberty. However, the happiest cows are NOT from California. The raw milk I have bought is definitely inferior in quality and nutrition, most likely of Holstein, type A1 beta casein cattle, of the famous Organic Pastures label. Alternatively, Whole Foods sells the premier St. Benoit creamery milk, which is Jersey, type A2. To my dismay, while not homogenized it was pasteurized at 145 degrees and it was sold _sour_.

Truly, I don't know why NE/Connecticut allows the TV advertisements of California milk especially when CA prides itself on its own _local_ milk. It is a paradox.

I can't wait to return to Melynda's product: raw in every respect, which I buy to support the health of my entire family. I hope and pray for Melynda's future success and that Durham retains this beautiful farm in its treasury.]]>

One of the Farm ladies
said I should share my story on a Blog, which I plan on doing soon. I spent a lot of time on my Uncle's and Grandparents dairy farms in my younger years. I am not on a farm now, but would like to keep in touch with dairy farmers and see if I can do anything here at home or to just say Hi and say thank you now and then for all they do. I plan on visiting some farms in the near future.]]>

Many cows in today's barns are milked from the rear, so the milker unit has to be pushed through a sometimes filthy tail to be applied to the cows sanitized teats. this is not good for the dairy farmer, processor, and especially the consumer. I am surprised and disappointed with the veterinary community and National Milk Producers Federation for their position of support on this issue. Dairy farmers strive to provide great care for their animals and to keep them comfortable.Our goal is to produce natures most perfect food at the highest level of quality. We do this with the highest degree of integrity, and pride.

You're right, they normally aren't that spotless! In terms of top bedding, it isn't required. Some farmers choose to put nothing on the beds, so they will just have a light coating of dried manure on them. Or they will sometimes put a small layer of sawdust, straw, lime, or manure solids on them to help keep the cows flanks clean from any manure, but the top bedding isn't necessary for cow comfort on the waterbeds. Does this make sense? These particular beds were installed in two phases, one year ago and then again a few months ago.

Although the relationship between dietary protein and bone health has been debated, cumulative scientific findings support protein’s beneficial role in bone health when calcium intake is adequate. Dairy Research Institute’s detailed review of the science is at: www.usdairy.com/_layouts/download.aspx?SourceUrl=/Communication Tools/ScientificStatusReportBoneHealth.pdf

Plus as a mom of two teenage boys, I know that kids would benefit from more dairy choices in the school cafeteria, and Greek yogurt is a great tasting and nutritious option.

However, since our economy is still so agriculturally based and thus corn-based, isn't the economic impact directly related to the price of corn?

Hence - if corn is too high of a price, fuel and food prices increase, stunting the economy.

With corn being the primary source of our renewable fuel that is blended with the petrols, and it takes more fuel to produce and manufacture it than it does to not use it at all, wouldn't it make more sense to cut it out when the price is "X" amount over a 5 or 10 year standard?

Just my penny's worth of thinking]]>

Thanks for your question.

Here is the response I have received from the creator's of the MilkPay app about the future availability of an Android-enabled app:

The iPhone version of MilkPay was developed first as this was seen as the largest target audience. We have now completed the iPad version and it is in the Apple queue for approval and release to the App Store.

We are waiting to see how well this new app is received before proceeding to publish it for Android devices. If it proves to be well received and used, we will publish MilkPay for Android devices as well.

Congratulations on your article. I would also like to share a few comments from what I have observed in my practice as a veterinarian. When there are hoof problems, there are also retained placentas and metritis a majority of the time. Also, the cow’s hoof is equivalent to two human fingers with which she has to support her weight. Additionally, the size of the hoof also correlates with the amount of weight the hoof can support. I hope these comments are useful. Thank you.]]>

Investigating the State's endless dairy debacle

March 27, 2012: For the second time in less than a year, the Board of Agriculture has quietly approved loan deferrals for the failing state financed Valley Dairy's milk plant. It's Deja 2% all over again.

On January 28, 2012 the Board of Agriculture voted to defer current payments on outstanding loans owed by the Matanuska Creamery (Valley Dairy) worth over $600,000. It was the second time in less than twelve months the board has used the exact same excuse to keep the dairy on state funded life support.

As far as Matanuska Maid out in the Valley, they have -excellent- products, but they limit what they sell in Anchorage (about 45 minutes from the Matanuska Valley area) so much that it's a complete BUMMER.

I used to buy everything from them from milk, to ice cream, to cottage cheese -- EVERYTHING that they make. Now- unless you want to make the trek out to the Valley, about the only thing you can buy in Anchorage is their gallons of milk. They don't even sell half gallons here anymore!

Mat-Maid also makes stellar eggnog during the holidays --- but they only bring it into Anchorage to sell one day a week in an area in one of the larger malls. Their eggnog flies off the shelves, but unless you're out in Wasilla or Palmer ("the Valley") good luck getting it....

It's almost like they don't want to turn a profit. There are what-- only about 65K people who live in the Valley and within the Anchorage area, there are 360K and including the smaller communities of Eagle River, Indian & Girdwood - over 400K. WHY then - out of all the products Matanuska Maid makes, do they =ONLY= sell gallons of milk in Anchorage?

Doesn't make dollars or SENSE!]]>

I can picture Dick Bedessem in his leisure suit as if it was yesterday. I didn't get to wear Chuck Taylors (they were La Crosse Rubber Mills tennis shoes for me.) I shared it with my kids and we talked about Bangor and growing up in a small town. I laughed about the Boys Club and their spikes. When I was young I thought they were the rich kids from La Crosse. I usually had to sneak into Farmers State to get milk because Dad was at First National. I was sure it was against the rules or something. Thank you for putting this all down.

"The Colorado Veterinary Practice Act stipulates that pregnancy diagnosis is a veterinary act. However, that only applies to someone that wants to offer their services to multiple dairies. The Veterinary practice act does not pertain to individual dairies or ranches. There is nothing to stop a dairy or ranch from hiring someone or teaching someone to pregnancy diagnose. The only way they would get in trouble is if they were doing something that could be considered an animal welfare abuse, which a technician ultrasounding would never be deemed so. There are many dairies doing their own DA surgeries, and ranches that do c-sections. As long as it is not considered an animal welfare issue, there is nothing a farm or ranch can't do with its own animals.

"And every state has its own veterinary practice act, and they are all different. I'd say most have a stipulation against pregnancy diagnosis, but again that would only prevent someone from offering their services to multiple dairies. However, there are many states that don't preclude lay people from doing pregnancy diagnosis as a service for a fee, such as the state of Georgia. And if a veterinarian trains a technician and has them doing pregnancy diagnosis, it is legal as long as the tech is under the supervision of the licensed veterinarian, which is the way I use my techs. You don't need to physically be looking over their shoulder, but should be on site or have video link to see what the tech is scanning."

My activity meters show that each cow has her own cycle, some up to 28-30 days.
Do you really want that 150# cow preg at 65DIM so you can try to get her to dry off when the time comes? Not if you're a commercial milk maker, and thereby forcing her back into that freshening period when her risk of culling is much greater.
I wouldn't want to farm without my activity meters. I also want to treat each cow as an individual with her own needs of when she needs to get pregnant. Doesn't always work, but at least it's not fighting nature.]]>

Only this week 3 farmers in Galway experienced a narrow escape (and lost 4 cows) during manure mixing, due to H2S poisoning. Please never forget this risk !!!!!!

mi pregunta es, cual es la diferencia en porcentaje de efectividad en aplicar las vacunas arriba mencionadas en la parte trasera y el cuello del animal.

otra duda que tengo es importante la posicion de la abuja, me refiero al angulo, para intruducir el producto al momento de vacunar en la parte trasera del animal.

tambien e trabajado en establos en donde se aplica la vacuna de sincronizacion, se puede decir independiente a cada animal, una abuja por animal, se preparan las inyecciones con anticipacion para los animales a vacunar. es esto venefico o el resultado es el mismo vacunando en series de 5 por abuja.

los empleados normalmente somos los mas confuncidos al desempe;ar nuestro trabajo porque si expresamos las ideas nos contestan aqui lo hacemos aqui.

gracias....

otra inquietud que me permito expresar abusando de su medio de comunicacion es esta.
las lecherias que entren a un rango de animales me refiero de mil vacas en adelante, porque no siguen un protocolo general, que es esto, una organizacion que regule, controle, supervice y proporcione capacitacion a nivel general.
lecherias five start, 5 estrellas, las lecherias deben de cumplir instalaciones, empleados, producto y capacitacion a todos niveles obligatoria. o no entran a la certificacion.

lo siento por todo esto, pero los empleados siempre somos los estupidos, decabo hay muchos. mil gracias.]]>

She does not say PETA worked directly with either the NMPF or the AABP.

I guess if you see several videos from several different dairy operations that all basically show the same sort of treatment, yeah, it does begin to seem like the norm.

In an industry where a living creature is a commodity, unfortunately there is a lot of abuse in the name of profits.]]>

Besides drastic improvement in taste, nutritional value, (Brix values for plants), and health from the bottom to the top of the Food Chain, by using a product that is organic, and in addition to a significant improvement in the financial bottom line, it's not only ecologically responsible, it's also very rewarding to give back to our soil's biota, the plants, the animals that feed on the plants, our families and ourselves, and to Mother Earth.

Without getting more long-winded than I already have been (by bringing-up facts about how an apple today is tasteless and nutritionally empty compared to one of 80 years ago) I'll close with my email address and an invitation. If anyone wants more information, please feel free to contact me. It may take a bit for me to get back to you, yet I will.

I also read a related story about The Black Forest in Austria (and other forests in Europe and the US) which in the late 1980s were feared to be almost hopelessly lost due to the stresses of acid rain and heavy metal pollution. The Austrian forest was saved by a "rock dust" that was kicked-up from a gravel road! It's all about micro- and macro-minerals and elements. These not only neutralize the pH and serve as a buffer, they also feed the soil organisms which leads to healthier plants!

A couple of decades has now passed which has allowed enough time for research into the beneficial properties of this "rock dust." After reading these stories, I set-out to learn enough to make a presentation of my findings to my dairyman, and to discover what I believe is the best source - since there are some superior sources as well as 'greener' and 'not-so-green' was to collect/mine/grind an effective mineral product for mineralization of the land, animals and humans.

This brings me to now. I am still figuring-out in what particular capacity I will be ultimately involved with the young company I found. CEO would be a nice start. No matter...I feel that even if there were no 'openings' for me, I am duty-bound to share what I am discovering about the miracles associated with remineralizing (y)our soil. We just may need to remineralize the Earth, one farm at a time.

Just like there were people living here when Columbus "discovered" America, what I am discovering is really just nature doing what nature has done all along...well, until man came along and pretty much raped (and continues to rape) the soil with modern NPK Ag practices that 'take' so much without 'giving back.'

Part 1 of 3

I was happy to see (and agree 100%) with the statement about the "wide range of beliefs" about "climate change." It is also apparent that there are some who will foist rules and regulations onto others under the guise of an almost evangelistic belief system that has been very effectively sold and is being used as a vehicle to control and to tax.

Regardless, I believe that one does NOT need to subscribe to the politics attached to the anthropogenic climate change theory in order to be a good environmentalist. Mother Earth deserves our best efforts.

I have found something that I feel may be of use both within the study mentioned as well as to every dairyman, rancher, farmer and even to pet-owners and humans. Are there any dairymen reading this who are interested in a way to make liquid manure odor-free, unattractive to flies and more effective?

Some months ago, as a member of a team of physicians and researchers looking into radiation remediation (you know, the radioactive isotopes like Iodine-131 and Cesium-137 that aren't here because we are not looking for them?), and as a consumer of my beloved raw milk (don't get me started), I learned about how a dairyman near the Chernobyl disaster remineralized his pastures and reduced radioactive iodine levels in their milk and cheese to undetectable levels. Besides finding long lines of consumers anxious for clean milk and cheese, they also found that the lifespan of the cows doubled.

These evil regulations forced upon us put us, our families, and employees in physical danger-as well as greatly endangering our businesses and finances...in fact, even though OVER HALF the veal farmers in Ohio sent a petition claiming how the proposed regulations would force them out of business, the Careboard pathetically ignored them.

I can only hope that any states considering making deals with these vile, evil animal rights groups learn by this...these communistic style regulations are nothing more than a noose placed around our necks, slowly being tightened...and year by year we farmers will be strangled-by the very groups that was supposedly going to use scientific fact and look after the welfare of farmers and consumers...meanwhile, these animal rights groups cheer and gloat on how they violated our freedoms and imposed their purely evil agendas onto us. Only wicked monsters praise this-NOT people and groups that truely are concerned for us farmers.]]>

The Holstein cow, and our dynamic dairy industry, has given my family an excellent and profitable standard of living these past 51 years since we milked our first Holsteins in 1960. It has been a very good life!

And now my Holstein Association wants to mess it all up by introducing a "hair brained" quota plan to our industry. When we are now in a world market for our wonderful milk products and should do all we can to increase our supply and fill that demand.

We must stop fantasizing about manipulating our milk markets to improve our milk price by imposing quotas. (or killing cows.) We should, instead, concentrate on serving our customers, domestic and world wide.

The high producing Holstein cow is the perfect animal to serve our expanding markets if the Holstein Association Board of Directors, and other respected dairy organizations, will just get out of her (and our) way.]]>

But they are finding a new home in raw milk. Great taste, long shelf life, and restored health is winning loyal consumers to the original milk and this poll is one evidence to that.

While some in the industry will react against this by supporting efforts to suppress raw milk the fact of the matter is not only is it the consumers right to access it, it is inevitable that they will, legal or not.]]>

Why not get what the milk is worth at the farm?? I know processors are against this idea. They lead the cause against raw milk sales.
I feel all states should allow the sale of raw milk to the consumer. If they want to buy it, the consumer should have the privilege to do so.]]>

I think it is a matter for each individual to decide what they want to eat or drink. I personally would check out the farmer and his/her methods of collecting and handling the milk. Know your farmer, know your food! Goes for all food, not just milk.]]>

Also; while you were ablHugh and Walt; Excellent update on the work going on at the UMN Waseca station with the wet calf program. I am interested to know the rate you charge the cooperating dairymen for program 1.) 20:20 vs. 3.) 28:16 for 42 d vs. 5.) the 28:16 MR e to meet the gold standard with each of these programs, I would like to know the number of days requieed to weaning for each program.

Alex Bach, IRTA, Spain spoke via video conference to the 2010 Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference. Alex mentioned that they look at serum protein level as a means to estimate serum IgG and the level of passive transfer. Have you also done this kind of analysis at the Wasceca station?
And would it make sence to base the charges made to each cooperationg farm based of serum protein level of calves as they are delived to your station?]]>

They are colossal mistakes that need to be excised and substituted with a program that allows producers to simply contract individually for their price with their buyer, whether it is a co-op or a non-co-op buyer. This would be the epitome of going back to the basics of marketing management, and would have no mandatory deductions attempting to manipulate prices. The gross margin insurance part of FftF is fine if it remains voluntary, and would in effect blend beautifully with forward contracting. MILC is a market-manipulating selective payment program that also needs to be excised, not further manipulated to reward a different segment of the industry.]]> Thu, 07 Jul 2011 00:49:10 +0000 Tim http://progressivedairy.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6461:pd-poll-should-the-sale-of-raw-milk-be-legalized&catid=40:polls&Itemid=66#comment-530 http://progressivedairy.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6461:pd-poll-should-the-sale-of-raw-milk-be-legalized&catid=40:polls&Itemid=66#comment-530 Also, farm subsidies should be repurposed to support farmer's markets in every city.

The other raw milk is from cows fed the old fashioned way - by foraging from nature. Like grass, weeds, & leaves. These cows get lots of sunshine and will typically live 12 years and calve 10 times. These cows don't stink and are usually robust and healthy.

Moral of the story: We cannot mass produce food, just junk.

I too have enjoyed raw milk for decades and join with those who prefer their raw milk from pastured grass fed cows which fortifies the milk with Omega 3 essential fatty acid unlike grain fed animals from which omega 3 is missing.

These essential fatty acids are a key ingredient to our health and well-being as without them our health and the health of our nation suffers.]]>

Raw milk does not spoil, it sours, which is another healthy cultured product. Pasteurized milk, since it has killed all beneficial bacteria who safeguard the milk from harmful bacteria, spoils. It is already a dead product and becomes rank. Incidentally, there are more cases of food born illness from pasteurized milk than raw milk.
Consumers should be able to choose what they want to consume. No one unknowingly purchases raw milk. They do so because they want a better and healthier product. Our government takes far too many liberties in controlling our food system for the sake of our "health" (read: their wallets).]]>

What is it about our legal system that makes it so hard to remove laws? Is it laws or regulations that are the problem? Personally, I believe milk, or any other food for that matter, has no business being legalized OR illegalized. I'd simply like to ask the lawmakers to "step away from my food, please."]]>

Conventional dairyman needn't fear allowing consumers options.

It seems the more the industry or gov't tries to suppress raw dairy consumption, the more it grows. Prohibition is bad for business. Free and fair trade is good for farmers.

As publicist for The Campaign for Real Milk, I hear from many who desperately need raw milk for health reasons. I am one of them. To deny access is wrong, it is to deny life itself, and the pursuit of happiness, ie., wellness.

Banning raw milk in a free nation is an embarrassment and a betrayal.]]>

And a big no, no, NO to contaminated, unhealthy, battery raised, filthy factory processed, e.coli ridden, super-bug producing, chemically laden products, that are passed through profit driven, subsidized, corporate entities, unbelievably professed as clinically sanitized and "pasteurized", therefore, safer food sources.

I will always be able to choose non-GM, no-injection, nutritionally dense food sources from local farmers or become on myself...local grass roots network relationships work regardless of political pendulum swings...always has, always will. Early adopters, followed by mainstreamers, followed by resisters...it's just a matter of patients, education and time. The more you know, the more you grow, from heritage seeds!]]>

Asking whether or not something should be "legal" can be a dangerous question. If you immediately recognize this then you need not read further.

Otherwise ask yourself: why would we want to take something that we have as a Right to do and convert it into a legislated act that is somehow declared legal by government and thereby regulated by the government? Does that make really good sense? If you don't want your Rights compromised into something that is merely "legally" permitted and thereby regulated by government to the point where the act can be compromised, minimized, oppressed and possibly taxed out of existence then reconsider this idea of having the thing/s you want by "legal" means. Consider asserting your non-regulated, non-permit issued Rights! Once again - If you have the Lawful Right to do as you please (as long as you cause no injury to others or their property) then is there a good reason to convert your Right into a legal act monitored, controlled (and worse) by government? I guess some people find something attractive about that conversion! (I imagine it's like being converted to a new religion!)]]>

What is going on here?

It is about large factory, corporate farms wanting to corner the market. It is about eliminating competition. Dairy farms that are filthy, with polluted, puss filled milk can make the filth all go away with pasurization. If raw milk catches on, they will have to clean up their act or find another way of making a living.

My wife and I have been drinking raw milk for the past 3 years without any problems or regrets. I want to continue drinking raw milk.

In fact I will move outside of the United States if my freedom to choose the foods I eat are taken away from me. The way things are going, I may not be here much longer.]]>

Sale of cigarettes and wine is legalized, as well as MSG, aspartame and Splenda. The GMO corn / high fructose corn syrup and soy, and the rapeseed (Canola oil) are legalized, as well as hundreds of foods because of the toxic ingredients in them. For example antibiotics and rBGH, and herbicides and pesticides in meats and dairy. GMO soy flour is legalized in feeding poultry, cows, and farmed fish like salmon.

The unpasteurized raw cow milk - organic (no GMO soy and GMO corn is fed to cows) with no antibiotics and rBGH given to cows - should be absolutely legalized in USA.

Many children and adults will experience less allergies and diseases associated with altered casein in milk.

It’s hard to believe that most of toxic foods are allowed for sale but non toxic raw organic milk. It’s not the milk that makes one sick, but the ignorance about how to use it.

The best boiled milk, though, can make one dead if it’s consumed with meats or melons in one meal, especially, in the summer.

It’s immensely healthier than any soft drinks, which brought the country to obesity, and which are not only legalized but loudly advertised 24x7.]]>

The argument about health and safety is a separate matter from the Rights issue. That can and should be addressed on a case by case basis within the local community or possibly on a state level if the people of the state demand it. It is not federal issue! The federal government has no Fundamental lawful business attacking small farms and the like simply for selling raw milk! Keep in ,ind that Fundamental Law means Constitutional!]]>

I can see four possibilities.

1) The numbers are false.
2) The math is wrong.
3) Dairy Farmers make up the difference elsewhere (with other products or Government subsidies).
4) Dairy Farmers will soon stop producing milk.]]>

Animal care and well-being is the key to a profitable dairy.
I live by the motto " A cow is a lady, Treat her like one" I am sure most other dairies abide by a similar creed.]]>

small farms that are econmically sustainable for dedicated farmers. Digesters that could generate biogas to grid, reduce phosphorus run-off to lakes and make it feasible to convert nitrogen to nitrate for farm use.I am looking for grant funding to help achieve this objective. Can you identify a couple of scalable AD.s that should be considerd

I agree this is now a people issue with real people getting hurt. To not have a guest worker program for this country is unrealistic. So is amnesty for illegals.
Too many of our politicians talk guest worker programs to one sector of society and, sometimes on the same day, will talk immigration laws and enforcement to another sector.
They do not really want to fix our immigrant labor issue, since this way they will receive the vote from both sectors]]>

Another technology worth looking into, is a Biogas Digester which processes organic waste. This can produce energy and profit, not only with manure, but food waste from neighboring processing plants, expired supermarket waste, slaughterhouse waste, and even fast food waste.

Contrary to the reputation which digester projects currently have in the States, this technology is widely used and proven throughout Europe.

There is a huge potential for renewable energy growth on American farms, and it would be beneficial for all farmers to be aware of their potential. In an increasingly volatile industry, one could diversify their income sources with renewable energy.

This is being discussed right now in regards to radiation poisoning in Japan.

Based on scientific evidence collected by the Vienna government which proves the bioremediation capacity (uses biological process to overcome environmental problems) of rockdust to literally "leech" radiation toxicity from the body,and Austrian farming practices which, post Chernobyl, integrate use of rockdust to do the same from dairy cattle/products and,the fact that an Austrian rockdust company/product ("Super BioMin") and its Head, Robert Schindele, sent quantities of their mineral source to the Ukraine after the nuclear reactor meltdown there to help people detox from radioactive fallout, which was filmed by a Japanese documentary crew.]]>

Modern Agriculture has evolved in the ability to remove the limitations to plant growth, from burning forest for ash fertilizers, to bison bones, to Guano islands, then in 1913, to crafty Germans figuring out how to suck nitrogen from the air to now with natural gas derived fertilizers. These chemical fertilizers have over come nutrient limits to growth for 100 years.

NPK and the "Green Revolution" in genetics have brought us to where we are, all made possible by basically mining soil carbon stocks. So we have now hit a carbon limit in two distinct ways. The first is continued loss of soil carbon content, the second is fossil carbon energy cost. The present farming system spends ten cents of fossil energy delivering one cent of food energy.

We can not go back, but we can go forward with our newly acquired wisdom. Wise land management, conservation agriculture and afforestation can build back our soil carbon, Biochar allows the soil food web to build much more recalcitrant organic carbon, (living biomass & Glomalins) in addition to the carbon in the biochar.

We can rectify the carbon cycle, and beyond that, biochar systems serve the same healing function for the nitrogen and phosphorous cycles, toxicity in soils and sediments and as a feed additive cut the carbon foot print of livestock by 50%.

I'm happy for Dario. It is necessary for exemplary Mexicans like him that contribute to the country and to his fellow countrymen with his knowledge to help others like myself better understand our work. Thanks to him and the El Lechero magazine, I have learned a lot about dairies and how to take care of cattle, because unfortunately the opportunity for immigrants like myself to go to school to learn more about cattle and dairies isn't available. The information that is published is very important to me and I anxiously await every edition. This publication is an invaluable source of information for me. Thank you for your articles and for caring about the rest of us.]]>

Aunque la mastitis resulta en cambios significativos a la composición de la leche, no parece presentar un efecto al punto de congelación de la leche.

Fisiológicamente, la presión osmótica, o el balance de la sal en la leche de la vaca, necesita estar en balance con el nivel de sal presente en la sangre de la vaca. Cuando se inflama la glándula mamaria, ocurre una fuga de proteínas, sodio y cloruro de la sangre a la leche. Luego se disminuye el de nivel de potasio en la leche por otra fuga.

En vacas con mastitis, cuando se depone el nivel de la lactosa (una reguladora osmótica), la presión osmótica se balancea por un aumento en sodio y clorura en la leche.

Entonces, mientras que la leche de una vaca con mastitis demuestra un aumento significativo en sodio y cloruro, no parece presentar un efecto a su punto de congelación. La disminución en el contenido de lactosa de leche conteniente de mastitis aparentemente desplaza el efecto de la clorura a la depresión del punto de descongelación de la leche.]]>

Physiologically, the osmotic pressure, or salt balance of a cow’s milk, has to be in balance with that of her blood. During inflammation of the mammary gland, proteins, sodium and chloride leak in to the milk from the blood, and potassium leaks out of the milk into the blood.

In cows with mastitis, where lactose (an osmotic regulator) level is depressed, the osmotic pressure is balanced by an increase in sodium and chloride in the milk.

Therefore, while milk from a cow with mastitis will show a significant increase in sodium and chloride, there does not appear to be an effect on the freezing point. The decrease in the lactose content of mastitic milk apparently offsets the effect of chloride on freezing point depression.]]>

I am a business unit manager at a large multi national listed company in South Africa. We supply food ingredients and preservatives into all food sectors within RSA.

I head up the Dairy Sector nationally. We have been strugling to source product @ competitive US dollar prices though with Canada and even European suppliers being more competitive at times.My opinion is that the large global milk traders tend to sometimes dictate prices due to their position as channel leaders to the downstream market , i.e companies as ourselves.]]>

When a calf dies, it is sometimes difficult to figure out what is occuring. The best way to find the answer is to have your veterinarian out to do a necropsy on the dead calf along with any tests they feel are necessary to find the answer.
A couple of possibilities:
1) The calfmay have been infected at birth with a bacterial infection in the blood (septicemia).
2) There may have been something wrong with the calf (genetic defect, developmental defect, etc) that made it unable to survive).

Truly it is impossible to say without a necropsy and appropriate laboratory tests.
If this happens again, contact your veterinarian as soon as possible so that he or she can throughly investigate the problem.
If I can help with further questions, please feel free to comment here or contact me directly at tvet01@yahoo.com
Thank you.

I just read your article about the colostrum management programs. It's good to read that more and more farmers are aware of the fact that it is so important to have a good colostrum management program. I have been raising veal calves for many years and I can tell the difference if a calf did receive enough colostrum or not. The small investment of paying some extra time and thought on the proper use of colostrum always pays off.
Since I was born and raised on a dairy farm I now have the unique perspective that I know both how a veal producer and a dairy farmer sees those things. The veal producer will be grateful if a dairy farmer pays enough attention to colostrum management. His problems with diseases, like for instance calf scours, will be much less. There are a lot of things a farmer can do to improve the health of their calves. I a lot of valuable information on this subject on my own website.]]>

I admit i do not know all the details of the other plans, but i have completely read the Specter-Casey bill and feel it sounds correct for what is needed. I absolutely support American Farming-Dairy, but especially produce, to stop so many imports. No Farms means no food. It is hurting the milk industry, of course, and America needs to buy from America first and foremost for American profit.]]>

I am a consumer that supports the Specter-Casey Bill. It is sad that anyone needs to lose their job let alone the land that they worked all their life to produce & help society with the growth of needed food. The economy and the state it is in today revokes everyone's chances of prospering and growing anything in this pitiful country!!]]>

Whoever these characters are, I applaud them for helping to get the word out. Agriculturalists are a scattered lot, and are only now beginning to realize how the great cultural divide between city and country is being used by these animal rights groups to advance the vegan agenda. We really do need to be better at reaching out to and connecting with an increasingly urban public that by and large has never had any personal connection with the source of their food.]]>

Sure, Blaine can play kill the messenger, but that doesn't change the fact that their information is spot on and many of us have known this long before David or Rick or CCF. HumaneWatch is a great jumping off point for anyone's research into the factory fund-raising machine that is HSUS.

The folks that are fans of HumaneWatch strongly support animal welfare, work for rescues and shelters, work large and small farms, love the animals they share homes and barns with, but have an overarching respect for animals and want to do right by them - not remove them from our lives.]]>

Your most recent issue included 2009 Dairy Stats for the East Coast Region, and I would like to print a copy of each region's 2009 stats in an 8.5 X 11 page. All I can find on your website are the stats from 2008. Is there a way to find or get the 2009 data?

Thanks,

In your quest, you will find that many dairy farms are multi-generation family farms that DO CARE for their animals and ask all of their employees to do the same. I have witnessed this on dairies across the country and can rest assured that the dairy products I purchase for my family come from cows that are well cared for. You will also discover that the malicious behavior by the former employee of Conklin Dairy Farm was an isolated case and I am confident that when you see and talk with dairy producers in your area, your faith will be renewed, not blindly but with open eyes.

The cost of production has to be around $20.00/per 100 wt. At the price of milk now it greatly affects not only them but me as a John Deer Sales Rep.
