Animal welfare remains focus

Dairy farmers in Kewaunee County want to make sure the public knows the importance it places on caring for its cows. The perception of animal care on dairy farms took a hit in June when undercover reporters found cases of abuse at Fair Oaks Farm in northwest Indiana. The Kewaunee County Dairy Promotion Committee took the opportunity to educate guests during last month’s Farm to Fork Gala at Deer Run Dairy in Kewaunee about animal welfare with the assistance of UW-Madison Dairy Science Professor Dr. Jennifer Van Os. Kewaunee County UW-Extension agriculture educator Aerica Bjurstrom says Van Os reiterated the importance of farmers giving their cows the best possible place to live.

Bjurstrom says farmers in Kewaunee County are doing a great job caring for the needs of their animals, but there is always room for improvement.
