Saving (and feeding) Whey

The weather has been warmer lately, and things are greening up around the farm. While it may be a little early to say we won’t have any more cold weather, spring is just around the corner. Here at the dairy we have been saving our whey from cheese-making for about a month now.

Before this, our whey ended up on the fields as fertilizer for the next crop, but now we are feeding it to the cows and heifers as part of their ration. Both Jason and I like the faster turnaround of using the whey in a productive and conscientious manner. We have been able to adjust some of the amounts of other feeds for the cows, and it gives us another incentive to make cheese! 🙂
