An honest and unrehearsed discussion about trying to live a more simple life. This is episode 18 and today we are discussing the family cow and home dairying.
For this episode, we will be talking with our friendly local dairy farmers from Ohio. We met Mike & Dawn many years ago while searching for local eggs. A few months later, they decided to make the switch from selling their milk to a big dairy to selling directly to people in the community. Brian and I signed up for their herd share program.
Today we’re talking to Mike & Dawn about maintaining the family cow. We’ll cover topics like rotational grazing, once a day milking, the benefits of pasturing, and all things pertaining to maintaining a cow.
