Dairy farmers use technology to help their farms be more efficient and to keep their cows comfortable. From back-scratchers to fitbits, technology improves animal care on dairy farms!
We live in the information age. Most people can become partially educated on any subject through a quick google search and 10-12 minutes of scrolling. Unfortunately, it can be very difficulty to get accurate information about agriculture on the internet.
As a student studying animal agriculture and science at a diverse university, I have found that one question takes prevalence over all others regarding dairy: “Why do dairy farmers take the baby calves away from their mothers?”
It took a year or so of college for me to figure this out, but my voice is necessary and welcome in this industry.
