Water is reused in several places throughout the farm. For example, the water used to rapidly cool the milk from the cow then gets saved and reused to water the cows later.
We use many different strategies to protect our natural resources, including crop rotation, buffer strips and cover crops. By doing this, we are able to improve soil quality, prevent soil erosion, and manage crop pests and diseases.
We raise crops to feed our cows, including corn, alfalfa and winter rye.
The fiber is separated from the cows' manure to make fluffy bedding for the cows. The nutrient dense liquid portion of the manure is used to naturally fertilize the fields.
