One of the most unique things about living and working on a dairy farm is that the chores have to be done 365 days a year, morning and night, rain, snow, sleet, shine or sick or vacation or wedding or funeral.  Cows don't take a break and need to be fed and milked EVERY DAY!

 

At Foster Dairy, our milking starts at 4:30 am and usually lasts until 8 or 8:30am.  We milk again for the second time at 4:00 pm.  With the 115 cows we're currently milking twice a day, we're sending about 8,000 pounds of milk every day.  That is equivalent to producing about 930 gallons of milk every day.  We take pride in being able to provide a quality wholesome product to help feed the world.
