The ladies that put in the work
What makes Major's Farm TX's raw dairy products great is that they come from healthy cows who graze on pasture 365 days a year. We’re blessed enough to live in the south where they are able to be out on pasture year round and not contained to a barn for half the year. They are provided with extra sources of nutrition also. Our milk cows and heifers are fed a generous portion of alfalfa, hay and silage each day in the form of TMR, free choice hay and minerals are offered year round. They do get a supplemental high-protein feed at milking times. It is specialized feed for pastured dairy cows. Grass alone will not provide enough nutrition to meet their needs year round, especially in the summer months. Our cows do a lot of walking as they graze and make the walk to and from the dairy barn twice a day. This and their milk production increases their protein demand to keep their body condition strong. We also want to make sure they have a balanced diet of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals to keep them healthy because healthy cows make healthy raw milk. We take a lot of pride in our girls and a lot of care goes into maintaining them. Each and every single one of these ladies is evaluated at the very least twice a day when they come into the barn. They really are treated as prized family milk cows rather than livestock.
