What do consumers really think about how dairy farmers care for dairy cows and modern dairy cow housing once they’ve been down on the farm?

For 10 consecutive years, the college Dairy Judging Team has flown to Fort Worth, Texas for the Annual judging contest. We have high hopes of escaping the winter weather for a more desirable temperature. On the trip there, we barely escaped a winter storm in Columbus and even departed when Fort Worth was bracing for an ice storm. Despite the weather, our trip was quite productive and resulted in a favorable outcome.
