Dairy woman goes above & beyond for cow comfort on the farm
On a dairy farm, cow comfort comes first. After losing her husband in a farm accident, Karen Hawbaker could have easily sold the farm and tried to move on. However, her passion for agriculture and her farm got her through that tough time.
According to Tastemade, “One of Karen Hawbaker’s top priorities as a dairy farmer is the comfort of her cows. Chef Courtney Guerra sees the trust between Hawbaker and her animals firsthand when she pays a visit to Warm Spring Dairy to learn about what it takes to run one of the farms that make up Land O’Lakes farmer-owned cooperative.”
Karen said, “I continue to do it because I feel like God has given me a passion for agriculture, especially for dairy. It is providing food for people. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
