|Did you know that our cows talk to us? That’s right– even though we don’t speak the same language, we can sure understand each other. And this week, the bovine ladies told us loud and clear: It’s time to stop producing milk.
You see, as the weather gets colder and the pasture changes, there is no longer enough fresh, green grasses to produce quality milk. (It takes a lot of nutrition to make JakoPure milk for us to drink!)
The cows know that this is the season to slow down, rest, and care for themselves and the new babies growing inside them. It’s time to eat and sleep, not walk to the milk barn. And so they’ve slowly produced less and less milk each day.
And now they are done.
They’ll stay in the pasture all winter, where there is plenty of forage to keep them happy and healthy. The calves inside them will continue to grow. And come April, when their bellies are bursting and the grass is green again, they’ll give birth and be ready to make milk for us all again.
