Snider's Dairy

Snider's Dairy Our Motto is: "Where Every Animal is Treated like a Pet" Snider's Dairy Farm is a family owned dairy farm located in Denton, North Carolina. 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 named and are referred to by name rather than their ident

Survived day 1 of the county fair. I didn’t get around to taking tons of pictures because between washing, clipping and shoveling poop… It’s been a very long day! Be sure to come by and see the girls before they leave on Wednesday night at the Davidson County Fair!

Tomorrow the girls will hit the show ring at 5:00!

Introducing our newest addition to the farm, sweet Mabel! Mabel is a Jersey/Holstein cross born late Friday night. Her and Momma are both happy and healthy! Mabel is the first calf born that was sex-semen bred on the farm. Sex semen allows farmers to breed for heifer calfs from some of our best animals.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad in all our days (Psalm 90:14)

There is just something so peaceful about early mornings on the farm. Maybe it is the stillness of the animals or the sun rising on a new day. Every morning is just a simple glimpse of Gods beauty handiwork.

Are you an early riser or a late nighter? Farmers sometimes have to be both.

I’m a little late on this one but how cute is our newest addition. Diva brought her first lamb into the world on Tuesday and is being a great mother which we knew she would. His pictures don’t do the little guy justice. We have decided to call him “Coal” which I think fits him appropriately!

Is still a thing?

If so would you look 👀 at this beautiful girl! Reba is in fact a Holstein cow which most people know of as the chick-fli-a cow.

Reba’s red color which is caused by the expression of a recessive gene created a unique breed of cattle which are commonly called Red Holsteins. Red Holsteins have made a mark for dairy producers and now make the 7th major dairy cow breed in the US.

Reba is our only Red Holstein and allows our farm to milk 6 of the 7 dairy breeds!

Our last summer camp is officially over. These guys and gals had a blast milking cows, riding horses, feeding calves, and last but not least, everyones favorite thing on the farm, the Cowabunga Water Slide! We are truly blessed to have so many kiddos over the last few weeks come and join us to experience life on a dairy farm. I think this may become a new tradition!

Happy Cow Appreciation Day

Today is cow appreciation day and how can we even began to appreciate cows for everything they do. We’re talking about an animal that can make milk, make meat, and make hundreds of by-products that we use every single day! The very car you drive has a by-product from animal agriculture. Cows are truly amazing animals and not only do we appreciate them for all the goods they provide to us but working with them every day we see how amazing cows are. We may only give one day for cow appreciation but as a dairy farmer we appreciate these hard working girls every single day.

Izzy is throughly enjoying this cooler weather and raining day with an afternoon nap. Did you know cows typically sleep just a few hours a day? Most of the time cows just have periods where they drowse. We call this polyphasic sleep which is a fancy term for taking lots of naps at small intervals though out the day. We don’t know about you all but who loves a good nap?

Day 3/4 of the Conference has been more of the meetings and business side of things for our amazing dairy industry. We’ve learned about milk markets, hauling reports and animal welfare practices. To end our day we worked together to give back to the community by packaging boxes for second harvest food pantry.

To conclude, we wrapped up the conference with a motivational speaker before heading home.

We’ve made so many friends here and learned so much this week; however, we’re ready to be back with the animals. We are excited to be able to implement some of the things and knowledge we’ve gained from this week to our own farm. It’s safe to say that the dairy industry has some incredible young people out there working hard to keep dairy farming alive for future generations.

Day 2 of the Conference has consisted with visits to the Sweetwater Valley Farms where we got to explore their cheese processing plant and robotic milk barn. We also got a tour of the Mayfield Milk Plant. It’s amazing to see what goes on behind the scene to make sure dairy products are put out on the shelf at the stores. We’re continuing to learn from other dairy producers and how we can make innovative changes to our very own operation!

Day 1 of the Southeast Young Cooperator Conference has been a success. We’ve met a lot of really amazing dairy farmers from all over the United States, was able to present about our very own dairy and things we offer to our community, learned about upcoming milk prices/marketing from our co-op, and finished the night with some fun in downtown Knoxville. Tomorrow, we’re off for some farm and milk plant tours so stay tuned because we have some packed days ahead!

The empty barn.

A sad reality for the American Dairy Farmer is empty barns. The selling of cattle to make ends meet, fuel prices, fertilizer prices, low milk prices, the list goes on and on. Regardless of the reasons, we’re losing dairy farms across the country at alarming rates. We’re not only losing dairy farms but we’re losing valuable farm land to developers which is causing farmers to produce more on much less. The truth is farmers everywhere are struggling. We’re struggling every day to keep animals in the barn and crops in the fields. We’re struggling to keep enough valuable farm land to produce food for the billions of people who live on this planet.

We are beyond blessed that God continues to watch over us and that our barn is NOT empty but unfortunately that’s not the case for so many. I recently got to visit another dairy producer that’s barn used to hold over 200 milking cows and now has around 20 cows. All those empty stalls are just a reminiscent of what that barn once held. All the years and work that went into building that dairy slowly fading away. Just like many other dairy farmers; that producer is just trying to stay afloat in these tough times to keep the family’s farm going. Remember that each day you eat, the food in the grocery store has a story of how it got there. Food doesn’t just appear on a shelf. So please say a pray for your dairy farmers or any farmer that you may know, and buy some extra dairy products when you’re at the store. Help keep our dairy barns from being empty.

Summer Camp #2 in the books! We had another amazing day at farm camp with the kiddos! They milked cows, rode horses, feed bottles to the calfs, cooled off with the cowabunga slip-n-slide and ended it with homemade ice cream!

Keeping Cattle Cool

As farmers, we take great pride in our animal’s health and well-being. We always get asked how we keep the animals cool on hot summer days like today, especially since our cows are on pasture.



The main thing we provide for our cattle is plenty of fresh water. A mature dairy cow can drink 30-50 gallons of water a day and water consumption increases on these hot days. Making sure all the animals have access to fresh water is a must on these hot days to ensure they all stay hydrated.



Secondly, we make sure that all the cows have access to wooded, shaded fields, and barn coverage on these hot days. Just like humans being able to get out of the sun and into a cooler area can reduce their body temperatures to help them regulate the heat.



Lastly, we have fans and misters. While our animals love being on the fields on these hot days you will most likely find them in the barn under their fans. Our girls sure do love their fans and we keep adding more each month to keep them cooler.



In order for us to produce milk it’s important for us to keep our cows cool and happy. I always say if the girls are happy, I’m happy.

Christmas on the Farm completely outshines every other holiday event we've done. From horseback riding, bottle-feeding baby cows, learning and participating in the milking process to Maverick, Hitch, and the farm dogs, it's hard to choose what we enjoyed most. Josh and Brook now feel like old friends and we had an absolute blast. Thank you for your hospitality and don't be surprised if you see us trying to wiggle our way in on another tour. Merry Christmas and thank you for the great experience!
“Is this how this thing works?” Nugget asks.

While this beautiful Jersey from DFA family-owned Snider's Dairy, Denton, N.C., may not be the most adept at social media trends, her breed is known for producing milk high in butterfat!
