Hays and Meyer talked about a recent tour of dieticians that she helped lead to a dairy in Kingfisher. For most of the individuals this was their first time to visit to a dairy farm. Meyer said the dieticians were very curious and they had a lot of questions. After seeing the milking parlor and the whole farm, she said the group was impressed by the housing for the cattle and the 24 - hour a day care.
"We want to do every that we can to produce that safe, wholesome product for your families and mine," Meyer said.
In visiting with consumers, Meyer said she shares the same concerns.
"My family is just like your family, I want the best for my family, as far as what food I give them," Meyer said. "And, we as dairy farmers and individuals, we want that as well. We do everything we can to produce that and to let the public know that we care for our animals 24 / 7."
After hosting this group, Meyer said she felt that these dieticians became partners as they gained a new appreciation for dairy. After seeing a dairy farm first hand, she also thinks that these new partners will be more comfortable in recommending milk and dairy products to their clients.
Angie and her husband Tom own a 175 cow registered Holstein herd in Okarche. Angie was a city girl who married the third generation dairy farmer 26 and half years ago. The milk produced on their dairy farm is processed by the Dairy Farmers of America at the Hiland processing plant in Cushing, Oklahoma.
