THE HERD

The ladies that put in the work

What makes Major's Farm TX's raw dairy products special is that they come from healthy cows who graze on green pasture 365 days a year. Pasture is their primary source of nutrition. When our cows are not milking, grass is the only commodity they enjoy; however, when our cows are milking, we provide them with a few extra sources of nutrition. As any new mother knows, when you are nursing your baby you need extra calories; the same principle applies for our milking cows. To produce enough milk, it’s important that they are as nourished as possible.
The supplemental feed we give our cows is specialized for pastured dairy cows.  Grass alone will not provide enough nutrition to meet their needs year round.  All of our feed is soy-free and Non-GMO.
Our cows do a lot of walking as they graze on the pasture and walk to the dairy barn twice a day.  This 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. Our cows enjoy unlimited pasture grass every day, supplemental hay depending on the season, lots of clean water, and loads of sunshine.

TEIA

Teia is one or our registered Jersey heifers, and is the handful of the bunch. She was the first bottle calf that Rafael raised himself in 2020 and they became fast friends. She still wants to run, play and get her rubs when we are out working with her but now she is a little (a lot) bigger, so it gets interesting at times. A1/A2
