We have a small herd that consist of 45 head of cattle. Unlike most dairy farms, we milk Holsteins, Jerseys, Brown Swiss and Ayrshire cattle, four of the six dairy breeds. We strive to be as organic as possible with our cattle. Our dairy cows are mostly grazed on pasture and fed a complete mixed ration grain free from hormones and milk enhancing supplements. Each one of our cows are individually n

amed and are referred to by name rather than their identification tag number. We strive to make sure that our animals are individually cared for and that is why we strive to have personal bonds with our animals.

Yesterday, one of our newest Virginia girls had her first baby!

This is a huge milestone in us continuing to grow our dairy herd. 892 calved yesterday to a beautiful angus/cross bull. Her calf will be raised here on our farm and used later in our breeding program.

If you have been following us for a while you know that we do things differently here. 892 may be her number but this young lady needs a name to officially be a Snider's Dairy Girl.

Send us your best cow name suggestions! Once we get it narrowed down we will take the name to a vote! If your name doesn't get chosen this time don't worry because we have over 20 more Virginia girls who will be needing names soon!

Our February Employee of the Month is (insert drum roll)…JELLY BEAN!

Jelly Bean is a full blooded Jersey cow that was born and raised here on our farm. As a calf, she was used in multiple pictures sessions so someone has a picture with her somewhere! Jelly Bean is a first time mother and unfortunately her calf was still born. Nothing has stopped Jelly Bean though and she has stood out among her other first time mom friends in production.

Due to her hard work and dedication to producing high quality milk we have decided to name Jelly Bean our February 2024 Employee of the Month!

Yesterday I took a quick day trip to Knoxville for the Southeast Resolutions meeting. It’s always exciting to be surrounded by a great group of dairy farmers sharing knowledge and common goals. Of course I had to make a few pit stops on the way but made it home safe last night and was able to milk this morning. My next excursion with my amazing milk cooperative is coming up soon so stay tuned!

Today I took a rather LARGE leap of faith. I’ve been praying about this opportunity and well after 2 months the finances all fell into place to purchase a group of cattle from another amazing family farm.

To say I’m extremely blessed is an understatement but I’m also nervous about this next step in expanding my herd. Today we brought home 22 breeding aged heifers to their new home at Snider’s Dairy. It’s been a long and adventurous day bringing these girls from Virginia to North Carolina but with an amazing team we accomplished it.

I pray that God continues to place his hands on our little farm as we go into the future and continues to provide us with opportunities to expand our operation. We will be working on a video from today’s adventure so stay tuned as it will come out this week on our social media platforms!

This morning we milk tested the cows but why is milking testing important?

Milking testing allows us to calculate an average on the cows production, as well as test the somatic cell count, fat count, and protein count of the animals milk.

This important data allows us to ensure our herd is healthy and producing the best quality milk we can for consumers to enjoy!

If you know anything about us you know our girls are family around here. With that being said each month we like to acknowledge their hard work and dedication on the farm!

After much debate, we have decided to name Reba our January 2024 Employee of the Month!

Reba is an 8 year old Red Holstein cow. She is currently the only red holstein on the farm and has proven to be a power house in the milking parlor among her peers. Reba wasn’t originally born on our farm but since her arrival in 2022 she has been an outstanding addition to the herd and continues to do an amazing job providing us with delicious milk.

Introducing our first heifer calf of 2024!

Sweet baby Vivian made her grand entrance into the world yesterday. She is the most petite and rambunctious little girl there is. That cute face doesn’t do her justice.

1st time Momma Violet has officially joined the milking herd and baby Vivian is thriving!

So what happens to bull calves on a dairy farm since they don’t produce milk!

Here’s the facts:
✳️Bull calves are usually sold and raised for beef.

✳️Some bulls are raised as breeding bulls for a dairy; however, dairy bulls naturally become more aggressive and can be extremely dangerous over time which is why most dairy farms breed using artificial insemination.

✳️Depending on labor and space, some farms raise all their bull calves.

✳️Dairy bulls are profitable and play an important part to the dairy industry as beef animals.

✳️Both bull and heifer calves are always provided with a great quality of life regardless, as both play a crucial role in feeding the world.

Cow comfort is an important part of being a dairy farmer. Were to represent a cooperative that’s farmer owners value the importance of keeping animals clean and dry from the elements.

During these times of difficult weather having shelter from the elements allows our animals a safe spot so they can focus on making that delicious milk. By being a I, along with other producers have the ability to share practices that we do on our farm in order to provide our animals with the best possible care.

12 hours later and the sun is shining and the water has resided. Damage seems to be minimal but the driveways that already sucked (those who have visited know) are now in worse shape than before. The bridges held up and all the animals weathered the storm. Now to clean up and prepare for the next rain heading our way!

As of right now all the animals are safe!

With that being said we have no clue the extent of damage that’s been done with the rain. We pray that the bridges can withstand the water and we still have something left of a driveway after the water resides. We have been super lucky to have kept power and no severe damages that we can see but we will know more tomorrow. I prayed that God would watch over these animals today and boy did he send me a sign that he was taking good care of us even if the field was flooded!

This cold weather has us wanting to hurry into spring but since spring is a few months away we’re throwing it back to one of my all time favorite pictures I took of the girls in that lush green grass.

While these girls have all since left the farm, grand daughters and great granddaughters are still on the farm keeping their legacy alive!
