To celebrate National Milk Day and the start of June Dairy Month on June 1, Kerr Family Dairy hosted the Buckeye Summer Youth Program for a breakfast on the farm and dairy tour. Dairy farms all around the nation participated in the breakfast, and Fox 10 News was on hand to get reactions from the kids and share with viewers more information about how a dairy farm operates.

The Valley is among the nation’s largest milk-producing regions but, in the heat of summer, it’s utterly important for farmers to keep their cows cool.
“We wouldn’t leave our children in the car unattended in the summertime. We have to kind of think that way to the cows,” Jason Van Der Toorn of Boschma Farms tells ABC15.
The more comfortable a cow is, the more milk it produces. Much like us, Van Der Toorn says the ideal temperature for a dairy cow is around 75 degrees. His farm has a computer-controlled system of fans and misters that automatically adjust to the elements.
“When we do what’s best for the cow, she’s more efficient and makes great milk for us,” he says.
