BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — Dairy farms represent the best of America. In quiet places across the country, hard work, caring for cows and family come first.
Holstein Association USA celebrates farm families during the next episode of Holstein America, 9 p.m. CST, Thursday, Sept. 26 on RFD-TV. Mark the calendar or set the DVR to record this anticipated television broadcast.
It is an inspiring story about those with a passion for raising quality cattle and supplying healthy, nutritious products for consumers around the world. And it’s all made possible thanks to the Registered Holstein® cow.
“The Holstein cow is a natural converter. She takes energy from the sun, rain and forages, and produces milk. It’s a wonderful, sustainable and efficient part of life that we have,” says John Meyer, CEO of Holstein Association USA. “Our mission with Holstein America is to share that story with fellow farmers and consumers alike.”
In Holstein America, learn about modern-day dairy production and hear from those with a passion for Registered Holsteins. California’s productive Central Valley, small-town Texas, America’s Dairyland and the Indianapolis 500 are a few of the featured stops within the next episode.
Also featured is Dr. Bruce German, a professor at University of California-Davis, who shares an insightful look at milk’s role in the human diet — and how it has sustained life for thousands of years.
The hour-long program, sponsored by Merck Animal Health, also explores the programs and services offered by Holstein Association USA. Members explain how initiatives like Holstein Marketplace Sires and the HOLSim beef program help bring value to the farm.
