June is Dairy Month in Canada

The Moos Facts
I discovered some interesting facts about dairying and cows recently. The local paper out by our marina is based on the rural farm area along the lakeshore. It notes that there are about 322,000 dairy cows in Ontario, averaging 60 cows per farm. Each dairy cow typically produces 30 litres of milk from two milkings per day. Cows give milk for 10 months or 305 days after giving birth to a calf. They stop milk production for 2 months (dry periodl) before giving birth. Once again the 10 month milk cycle begins…get those milk cars ready to roll…George Dutka
