Alltech thinks that dairy farmers are heroes….

The fountain outside of my hotel in Lexington Kentucky.

So, if you didn’t know, I am currently in Lexington Kentucky attending a conference put on by Alltech called Global 500. Alltech is a global company that makes natural feed additives for animals, they also make beer and bourbon… It’s a cool company… This conference is a learning opportunity for dairy and beef producers from all around the world and I am proud to be a part of it.

As part of the conference Alltech launched a new website and new idea called Dairy Heroes. I got a chance to interview Laurna Fay who is one of the people who worked hard to put this whole thing Dairy Hero idea together. (I promise I will get better at this video thing. Also, I love her Irish accent!)

So what do you think, are dairy farmers (or any farmer for that matter) heroes?

Check out the Dairy Heroes website by clicking HERE (which features some Normande cows!!!) and be sure to like them on facebook by clicking HERE.


This is fun! I just hope that shadow super dairy hero doesn’t get his cape caught in the PTO shaft of the tractor. That would be a sad ending.

I don’t see myself as a hero by any means, but when I look at the people around me in the dairy industry and see all that they do I certainly can get behind giving them a big pat on the back.
