In June Organic Valley loaded up our dairy managers on a tour bus and took us to the Grimm family organic dairy farm in River Falls, WI. The day was perfect; sunny, breezy and slightly overcast. Everyone was ready to get out of the stores and be outside in nature.
On the bus ride out to the farm we were entertained and educated by Dr. Paul Dettloff, a doctor of veterinary medicine. Paul has worked with Organic Valley for over ten years to ensure the health of their livestock. His secret: healthy soil makes for healthy cows.
Happy Cows grazing in pasture.
