Dairy Farming: The Beautiful Way
Adam J Klaus
Dairy Farming: The Beautiful Way is a detailed how-to guide for establishing and managing a small-scale organic dairy. Covering the topics of infrastructure requirements, cattle management, milking equipment and techniques, cow selection, and business logistics, this comprehensive text covers all the information needed to successfully operate a profitable small dairy farm.
As small farms experience a resurgence across the country, and consumers increase demand for nutrient-dense raw milk, there is a great opportunity for modern dairy farmers. Cows are uniquely suited to the efficient conversion of simple pasture plants into nutritious raw milk. The holistic management of dairy cows results in a farm model that benefits farm families, consumers, the environment, and the cows themselves. Each of these components are considered and discussed in detail, with every detail explained in clear and concise writing.
The information in Dairy Farming: The Beautiful Way is drawn from the author's experience over the past decade running his own raw milk dairy at Bella Farm, in Western Colorado. It is designed to assist future dairy farmers to confidently make the transition to a holistic model of dairy management. Equally useful for startup farmers, and established multi-generation family farms, the model of grass-fed cattle efficiently producing top-quality raw milk is a proven formula for small-farm profitability.
