Dairy farming is a safe business as it is eco-friendly and does not cause environmental pollution as compared to other industries. The U.S. dairy farming industry is a thriving, mostly family-owned and operated industry that continues to meet the nutritional needs of the American public by producing safe, pasteurized milk and dairy products. Dairy farms are considered some of the most economic farming establishments because all the farmland is used to feed and house the dairy cows. Crops like corn, alfalfa and hay are grown to feed the dairy cows, and the rest of the land is often dedicated to loafing barns and milking parlors. Dairy cow manure can be used as fertilizer on the farm or sold to garden stores. In order for dairy farms to be profitable operations, dairy farmers must make certain that their cows are constantly in the 12 to 16 months cycle of impregnation, pregnancy, lactating and the drying up period before being impregnated again. Many of the calves born from dairy cows are then raised for veal. Dairy farms expect that on average a dairy cow will produce 6 to 7 gallons of milk per day, with current U.S. dairy farm production at 21 billion gallons of milk a year. Most milk produced by dairy farms travels under 100 miles to a grocery store to ensure freshness and quality. A dairy farmers day starts out by starting work at 4:00 - 4:30 a.m., 7 days a week. They clean and sanitize the hoses, connections and pipes that milk flows through to rid of germs. They feed the cows, take them out to exercise in warmer weather and clean their stalls. In colder months, the cows stay in and they have to clean the stalls around the cows. They take care of the animals by checking for bruises, and wounds, feed and take care of the young calves. Bottle feeding for the new ones, a bucket of milk for the older ones. Taking care of the crops when the weather is warmer, sowing, growing, and harvesting. They check out the feed that is stored in silos and grain bins; doing maintenance on equipment. To lower food costs, the dairy farmer grows part of the food for the cows.


Many dairy farms also grow their own feed, typically including corn, alfalfa, and hay. This is fed directly to the cows, and is stored as silage for use during the winter season. Large scale dairy farming is only viable where either a large amount of milk is required for production of more durable dairy products such as cheese, butter, ice cream, milk products and whipping cream. Owners and operators of dairy farms have years of experience with running town farms and working in the agricultural industry. Some owners have an educational background which includes a college degree in agriculture. They hire well experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated farmers. Dairy farmers produce milk to help produce various types of dairy products such as cheese. Along with hiring dairy farmers, they must have a reliable veterinarian on hand. Daily tasks include feeding the cows, milking the cows, keeping the cows and their calves are comfortable, cleaning milking stations, and keeping up with the cleanliness of their barns.
