These Pennsylvania farmers say they do try to stem Chesapeake Bay pollution — and that it’s expensive

This #MemberMonday we are excited to share how Christian and Laura Landis are working to reduce Pennsylvania's impact on the Chesapeake Bay. Their work is possible thanks to our partnership with @TurkeyHillDairy and @AllianceForBay! #THCWP http://ow.ly/aOCc50yiMcx

Pennsylvania is far from keeping its promises to reduce pollution that farms, urban runoff and sewage systems send downstream to the Chesapeake Bay. Farmers say they're trying to change that.

Russell then goes off to check and feed beef cows, and I'm off to the dairy!

I'm the fifth-generation dairy farmer. I dairy alongside my parents. My parents established J-Team Dairy in 2002 after going out on their own from a family partnership. We started off milking just 65 cows, we now milk 185 cows three times a day. We milk in a double 6 herringbone parlor. We ship 15000 pounds of Grade A milk a day that goes to Maryland Virginia Milk Producers. We belong to the Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association. #TakeoverTuesday

Who inspects Martin Farms? The Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association, which is also owned by Martin Farms and 1,100 other dairy farms on the East Coast. The cooperative says animal welfare inspections are conducted every three years, though WJLA investigators were not given inspection records to confirm that. I hope you get what you deserve.
