Once again, we've reached the end of another year. We come together to share a meal and enjoy the company of our coworkers. We share a common purpose at the dairy that is reflected in the commitment and attitudes of all our team members; to produce high quality milk, to communicate and encourage a rewarding workplace, and provide a safe and healthy environment for our animals.
Preventing lameness and treating hoof issues is key to overall herd health. Keeping cows healthy and productive is a priority and we are continually working with professionals in our industry to learn more about cow comfort and wellness.
The newest addition to our farm is the H Series Comfort Chute. With an open loading design and the ACCU-Trim(R) leg restraint system, we hope to achieve a more consistent and relaxed environment for both the cow and the trimmer.
We recently received the 2011 Tulare Dairy Herd Improvement Association Annual Report 3rd High Herd Award. We are very proud of this achievement and the continued hard work and dedication of our employees.
With the holiday season in full swing, we took a well deserved break today and enjoyed an Employee Appreciation Luncheon. We are grateful to have a roster of employees that are dedicated to producing clean, wholesome, and nutritious milk on our farm everyday.
Let's raise our glass of milk and make a toast to a productive 2011 and to a prosperous New Year!
