Consumers Want to Know How Farmers are Keeping Cows Cool

This month, ADA North East pitched a story to media about how farmers are keeping cows cool during the current heat wave. The story quoted several dairy farmers from within the region about the cooling methods they use on their farms.

Consumers and news media were interested. Numerous media outlets used the story and others requested one-on-one interviews from farmers to learn more about cow care. To-date, they include:

Kelly O’Hara and Garret Miller of Oakwood Dairy, Auburn, N.Y. were on

Paul Fouts was on WSYR-TV.
