Dairy Industry Spreads the Word at Ice Cream Contest

Tue, 20 Sep 2011 11:26:30 CDT

Dairy Industry Spreads the Word at Ice Cream Contest With the Oklahoma State Fair well underway, the annual Cow-to-Cone Ice Cream Contest, sponsored by Dairy MAX, was held this past weekend. Our very own Ron Hays served as a judge, along with Eugene Corley, a dairy farmer and producer from Tuttle, Okla. This contest serves as more than a chance to sample some delicious ice cream; it is also a chance to talk about the dairy industry.


Corley says the contest is a good way to get the word out about the industry and of course, ice cream is one of the best product they put out. And there are a lot of changes within the industry that many people are not aware of. Corley says there have been many changes because of the technology developed since they first started milking.


Of course, they began with milking by hand and they have now changed to using milking machines says Corley.


The drought has affected the whole state and it did not spare the dairy industry. Corley says some of the challenges the dairy industry will be facing as we move into winter are the dried up pastures, the lack of silage from corn, and the unability to find reasonably priced hay. Ultimately, Corley says it affected the dairy producers a lot like the beef producers across the state.
