The amount and composition of milk produced by dairy cows appears to be more regulated by internal, annual biological rhythms than by environmental factors such as heat and humidity, according to Penn State researchers.
The U.S. Census of Agriculture showed that farm sizes are growing, while the overall number of farms diminished by 3.2%. In total, there are 2,042,220 farms in the U.S. This accounts for 900,217,576 acres of land.
Like their human caretakers, dairy cows need top-notch medical care to stay healthy. Illness can drop milk production and threaten the rest of the herd, meaning a big headache and lost money for the state’s dairies.
