The Role of Dairy Cows in the Creamery’s Success

In the world of dairy farming and dairy manufacturing, success isn’t just churned out of thin air. It’s a delicate dance between the land, the hands that tend it, and the cows that graze upon it. At our creamery, we understand that our dairy cows play a pivotal role in shaping the quality and flavor of our dairy products. Which is why we have invited you to take a closer look at the vital role our dairy cows play in the creamery’s success, emphasizing the profound connection between their health and well-being and the exceptional taste of our products.

Plain and simple – happy cows give better milk. The journey truly begins with the well-being of our dairy cows. We believe that happy cows produce the best milk. And no, it’s not just a catchy phrase; it’s one of our guiding principles. Our cows are raised in a nurturing environment where they have access to clean water, fresh feed, comfortable bedding and robotic milkers. We truly believe that their contentment is reflected in the quality of the milk they produce.

A crucial aspect of dairy cow care is providing them with a balanced and nutritious diet. We work closely with a dairy nutritionist to formulate the the perfect ration of feed, ensuring our cows receive the right blend of grains, forage, and supplements. This careful attention to nutrition not only keeps our cows healthy but also enhances the flavor of our dairy products.

Every batch of milk from our cows is rigorously tested and monitored for quality. Robotics have allowed us to obtain data to ensure we have information at our fingertips to make decisions on how to better care for our animals and promote the highest quality of milk among our herd. This commitment to excellence extends to our creamery, where we transform this milk into a range of dairy products.

At the heart of it all is the passion we have for farming. Our family spends countless hours with the cows, getting to know their individual personalities and needs. This connection fosters trust and ensures the cows are content and stress-free, which ultimately leads to the production of exceptional milk.

In the world of dairy products, great milk starts with the cows and their well-being. Our commitment to the happiness and health of our dairy cows is unwavering. The next time you savor a glass of our milk or indulge in our fresh squeaky cheese curds, know that it’s the result of a harmonious collaboration between our cows and our creamery.
