June is Dairy Month -- Just What Can One Cow Do??
For today's June is Dairy Month feature, I found this great graphic that explains just what one dairy cow does for all of us.
It produces food and nutrients for us, deposits nutrients into the soil for other crops grown for people and animals, saves items from being deposited in landfills and even helps produce electricity.
That's a lot to ask from one bovine. And according to the 2007 Census of Agriculture, there were more than 600,000 dairy cows in New York state.
