Healthy cows and Omega-3s

How important is the health of our dairy cows?

To a dairy farmer the health of his or her cows is number one.  Farmers work very hard to make sure their cows are fed top quality feed and that they receive the best care. On our farm, Cornell Dairy, we started using a protein/feed supplement called LinPro-R from O&T Farms. It is derived from flax and a very good source of Omega-3s. What does this mean for our cows and milk? 

We are experiencing first hand the health benefits in our cows. Their coats are shiny and overall health has improved significantly since we started using LinPro-R. This is exciting for Cornell Creme because of the added health benefits of Omega-s enriched milk which we use to make our ice cream.  We are working with O&T Farms, on a continuous basis, to test our milk for Omega-3s and milk quality. We are committed to quality that starts at our farm and ends at your bowl.

I try to be the person my dog thinks I am

I love my dogs. They are an extension of our family.

Our dogs Murphy and Charlie are both rescue pets.  Murphy is a golden Lab/St.Bernard mix breed. He was abandoned as a puppy, left in a church parking lot.  We adopted him ten years ago and have never looked back. He is the best dog!  

Charlie the Dachshund came into our family two years ago. He was found running along a rural highway by the local police. We are not sure how long he had been on the run for, but he was literally skin and bones when he was rescued. He was also missing most of his teeth!  We took him in and cared for him, bringing him back to optimum health.

Charlie is our special member of the family. He likes to bark at light and sometimes stares at the wall. We wish they could both talk so we could know where they came from. The mystery may never be solved but the end result is we are so happy to provide a safe home for these two guys. They provide endless hours of love and affection to our family. 

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to help out with a great cause and could not say no. Winnipeg Pet Rescue was in need of help and the community came together.  Market Burger, 645 Corydon, hosted a day where 100% of the sales from Farmery Brewery Beer, burgers/fries and Cornell Creme ice cream were donated to Pet Rescue. We thank everyone involved and to everyone that donated. Over $1300 was raised! Awesome.

What's love got to do with it

Today is February 14th, 2014 or a special day we call Valentine's Day.  

This day has always been a favorite of mine.  I must confess when I was in grade school, I loved this day. Receiving Valentine's from friends and 'secret' admirers. How thrilling and sweet. As I grew up, the expectations became greater as I grew into adult relationships.  The anticipation of receiving a special gift on this day could be over-shadowed by someone forgetting to give said gift to you. I admit I have been disappointed on this day because of my expectations placed on others.

Then one day I read about the real story behind Valentine's Day. It was a day created from an expression of friendship, not romantic love. This changed my perception of the day. Valentine's Day is, and could be for everyone, just not lovers. The bonus is the excuse to eat ALL the chocolate. As I vowed to celebrate Valentine's Day, as an expression of friendship and pure thankfulness, every year has become a gift to myself. Surprise -life is sweet like that. 

 

 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  ~Enjoy
