Harvest 2017: Midwest Dairy Farm Round-Up

Harvest 2017 - Midwest Dairy Farm Round-Up

After I asked you to join me October 12 and observe National Farmers Day, it occurred to me you may not be familiar with the reasons why dairy farmers deserve the spotlight on Farmers Day, and quite honestly any other day throughout the year. Do animals ever not need care? Do we stop eating? No and no. The hidden talents of farmers – weather predictor, equipment fixer, heavy machinery driver, never-sit-down eater-on-the-go… confirms what I see every day. Agriculture is year-round, which means farmers keep the same schedule.

If you or someone you know is part of the 2 percent of the U.S. population involved in agriculture, you know these talents are real, and then some. To help show what’s been happening on dairy farmers across the Midwest during harvest, I’ve collected pictures and videos from farmers. Take a look at #Harvest17 through dairy farmers’ social media posts. Looking back at Harvest 2016 is pretty cool too.

It doesn’t seem like that look ago planting season in Midwest Dairy-land began. As per usual Mother Nature dictates when harvest begins and ends. When is the weather just right? What’s the window of time needed? I think what continues to amaze me about growing food for people and animals, in all the planning and preparation, a bountiful harvest is still mostly outside of farmers’ control.

Celebrating the most wonderful time of the year often means gathering with family and friends and putting your most festive foot forward to continue holiday traditions that have been passed down through generations. At Midwest Dairy, we also know that dairy products play an important role during the holidays - really, what is baking without butter?

It's nearly, finally here... June is Dairy Month! I've long admired #dairymom and farmer Brenda Rudolph for sharing what life is like on her family's dairy farm in central Minnesota.
