For the past five weeks, American Dairy Association North East has highlighted different dairy farmers with a weekly educational video series. For the sixth week Farmer Katie is back to give us a behind-the-scenes look at life at Cow Comfort Inn Dairy.
The series can be viewed every day this week, Monday, April 27, through Friday, May 1, at 10 a.m. ET on the American Dairy Association North East Facebook page. This week’s videos along with more information can be found on the American Dairy Association North East website.
