Find out what a day in the life of a Dairy Nutritionist looks like and the impact they have on the dairy farm! You’ll likely be very surprised!
If you’ve been reading Chocolate Slopes for awhile, you likely know how passionate I am about my home state of Michigan and the vast farming and agriculture that happens in my state. You can read about my first farm experience here, which was quite the eye opener. Since then I’ve visited several more dairy and beef farms along with my first produce farm tour. These opportunities have not only opened my eyes to an entirely different world (yes I’m a city girl), but hopefully they have shed some light on the many misconceptions the general public has on farming, treatment of animals, antibiotic-use and many more hot topics.
In honor of dairy month, I was offered the chance to interview a dairy nutritionist to gain insight from her perspective and what a day in the life is like for a dairy nutritionist. Check out my interview below to discover the huge variety of foods cows can eat, how many different diets cows can have, and much much more!
