Another fantastic Facebook post by Julaine of Creekside Dairy. Julaine does a great job describing the daily routine on her farm. It only takes a few minutes to share the great things happening on your farm but these few minutes create a lasting impression on those less familiar with agriculture. Keep up the fantastic work!


As I have mentioned many times, our cows enjoy their time on pasture immensely. Currently, they are grazing on our cover crop, which has quite a bit of new growth after we cut it for silage a few weeks ago. Allowing the cows to graze here will help ease the preparation for corn planting next week: less long grasses to work into the soil before planting. The girls really enjoy grazing on this field, especially because of the row of trees that provides shade for them in the heat of the day. But, regardless of how much they enjoy their pasture time, when it is time for milking they line up at the gate, eager to head into the barn. Last month’s post of the cows entering the parlour willingly and calmly was met with some skepticism from several individuals who had been indoctrinated to believe that milking is cruel and painful for a cow. Again, it is obvious in this video also that this is obviously not the case. Our cows head into our barn and milking parlour calmly and willingly, with little herding direction necessary. Milking is a part of their daily routine and it most definitely IS enjoyable for our girls. Happy and calm, they amble into the barn and parlour, stand patiently in line until it’s their turn to be milked all the while chewing their cud. And once milking is done (a 8-10 minute process) they are free to roam our spacious barn, eat at the feed bunk, socialize with their herd mates, etc, until tomorrow’s morning milking and subsequent pasture time, when the whole process is repeated again. #happycows #milk #organic #pasture #content #calm #farm365 #familyfarm #dairyfarm100% 100% Canadian Milk Agriculture More Than Ever we We Heart Local BC
