Did you know that green house gas emissions per kilogram of milk produced have actually DECREASED by 11% between 2005 and 2015? Meanwhile, Starbucks is over here bringing coffee beens over from Asia 🤔🤔🤔

"I’m not sure how a company that sources its coffee from Asia and always has a drive through line 10 cars deep is going to reduce its carbon footprint by cutting milk, which on average travels less than 100 miles from cow to coffee shop."

What Milk Is Good For My Kid?

With so many options at the grocery store, moms can be confused as to what kind of milk is best for their kids. Experts from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Heart Association agree that real milk is best!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEGNJTq_eL4&feature=youtu.be

At different ages, kids need different types of milk. From 0-12 months, use breastmilk or infant formula. At age 1, use whole milk. For ages 2+, use low-fat ...

Never forget the ones we lost.

Never Forget: WNY farmer Dave Meisenzahl, along with his son Jeremy and family, have been busy this morning setting up their patriotic combine harvester just west of the town of Honeoye Falls. There’s no piece of farming equipment quite like this, a touching dedication to the events of September 11, 2001. The harvester will remain outside here tomorrow and for the remainder of the week, their way of keeping alive the memories of those lost that day. It’s a touching tribute and one the public is welcome to come see on Rush-Lima Rd. (Route 15A). You can park near their roadside stand as the intersection is quite busy. In a few weeks, the harvester will be busy cutting down soy beans and wheat in their vast fields. They’ve been farming for nearly 100 years in the family, I always enjoy stopping here. #NeverForget

Dairy Farmers Hurt By Trade War

Last week, Chris had the opportunity to speak with NPR about how whey protein exports to China have been dramatically affected by the African Swine Fever outbreak and subsequent loss of hundreds of millions of pigs.

He also discussed how changing our antiquated milk marketing/labeling laws would increase domestic demand for dairy, which would have a huge positive impact for the industry.

Click on the link below to listen to the broadcast that aired Saturday morning.

Exports of U.S. dairy products to China have dropped more than 50% because of the trade war. The U.S. is losing out at a time when Chinese consumers are eating more cheese and drinking more milk.

Very interesting Forbes article written by a Cancer Epidemiologist.

It explains how the lead researcher of the team who determined that glyphosate could be "possibly carcinogenic" (on the same level as sunlight) was also secretly employed by 2 different law firms as an "expert witness." These firms were already in the process of filing lawsuits against Monsanto before the final IARC ruling even came out.
Can you say #conflictofinterest

Since their findings have never been able to be duplicated by any other research teams, this may just be another case of #badscience.

BTW if you want to follow a really neat agriculture page, try TDF Honest Farming. Derek does a great job talking about all things ag.

Let’s start Monday off with a bang. an old article but worth the read

Congratulations to Amanda Thomas on her high school graduation tomorrow! Amanda spent the last month of her senior year working on our farm for her senior project. We entrusted the most valuable animals on the farm to her care-our baby calves and young heifers. They represent the future of our farm and require a caring, observant person feeding them. Amanda did an amazing job-on time-on task and was fun to work with!

Whole Milk In Schools

Did you know the USDA National School Lunch Program prohibits schools from allowing the choice of whole milk (3.25% fat) or reduced-fat (2% fat) milk for growing children? Only fat-free (0%) and low-fat milk (1% fat) are allowed to be served. Studies show children who drink whole milk are less likely to gravitate towards less nutritious options such as sodas, juice and sports drinks.

A bipartisan bill in Washington -- House Bill 832 The Whole Milk for Healthy Kids Act -- would allow schools to serve Whole Milk as a choice. Not a single Representative from our state of Virginia has backed the bill. Here's how you can show your support.

Chris, Sarah, and Caleb had a great time at the Fuel Up To Play 60 event with the Washington Redskins today. This program is in elementary and middle schools nationwide to help promote kids to eat healthy foods and to lead active lifestyles. The kids who successfully complete all the steps are rewarded with this trip to meet a NFL player and their local dairy farmer! It is a great program to be a part of and lots of fun too!

Good luck Tang!

It was our pleasure to host the Congresswoman and her staff today. We are glad to see that at least one of our policymakers is making an effort to learn about modern agricultural practices and discuss how current and proposed legislation affects our businesses. Chris Potts Sarah Potts Nancy Potts Logan Potts Hayley Goodwin

My first stop on an agricultural tour of #VA10 was Dogwood Farm—the only dairy farm in Loudoun County. We spoke about the state of local agriculture and some of the ways Congress can support small farms.‬

‪We talked about how the ongoing trade war is hurting farms like Dogwood. It’s not a partisan issue. There’s a way to support American industry in a global market without engaging in trade wars that hurt our small businesses here at home. ‬

Thank you, Dogwood Farm for such a gracious and informative tour!

DR MICHAEL MOSLEY: Why full fat milk is the best thing you drink

A study of 18,438 American women found those eating the highest amount of full-fat dairy were the least likely to gain a lot of weight over 11 years.

Britons are drinking a third less milk than they were 30 years ago, and consumption rates continue to fall. a third of people under 35 are now considering cutting back, writes DR MOSLEY.
