Burning Questions

I’m trying to get a consumer’s perspective on dairy farming for a work project. Since I grew up on a dairy farm and know a lot about it, I’m trying to gauge what consumers want to know about on-farm practices. What are some questions you have about dairy farming? Do you want to know what cows eat? Where they sleep? How long before the milk is taken to the processing plant? Thanks for your help!

    Are the cows friendly? Can you pet them and love them?

    How much milk can you get from one cow?

    Hope that helps! Me loves cows.

    Or better yet (I wish there was an editing feature for stupid comments I’ve left – gah!), what’s the difference between the white and black cows. Is there any?
