Earth Day is still a little more than a week away, but Michigan dairy farmers are ready.
“We really think that farmers are the first stewards of the land,” Paul Gross, extension educator with Michigan State University, says in a video. “If you’re a farmer, you feel that tie to the land.”
And, Michigan dairy producer Mike Rasmussen explains the continuous cycle at his dairy where nutrients produced by the cows are used to grow corn that is, in turn, fed to the cows so they can produce milk.
In addition, the Michigan Dairy News Bureau has created five images for social media supporting the dairy industry’s role in keeping the earth green.
Images of dairy farms and corn fields with the taglines “Earth Day Every Day,” and “Happy Earth Year! Celebrating Earth Day 365 days a year,” reiterate dairy producers’ commitment to caring for their land.
The Michigan Dairy News Bureau will share the images on Facebook and Twitter.
