Winter Storm Did Not Slow Down Operations of the Morris Dairy in Ninnekah

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 03:31:26 CST

Winter Storm Did Not Slow Down Operations of the Morris Dairy in Ninnekah Winter storm Goliath was not a major disaster for dairy and beef producer Brett Morris of Ninnekah, Oklahoma, who is is a third-generation dairy farmer and runs a dairy, cow/calf and stocker operation. Brett talked with Sam Knipp of the American Farmers & Ranchers about the snow and sleet storm that came into Grady County right after Christmas. You can listen to Knipp and Morris talk about how the Morris family responded to the storm as they took care of their beef and dairy cattle during and after the storm.


Morris said that they spent a little more time with their dairy cows than normal during the storm, making sure they were well taken care of and had some extra feed rations which helps the cows generate more energy which helps keep them warm. Morris was thankful that unlike many of his neighbors, their farm never lost power in this latest storm, which makes the twice a day milking of their dairy herd a lot easier experience.


Morris did say one of the bigger challenges when you get winter moisture is that you often end up with a lot of mud. That means extra attention to each cow to make sure that their bellies and up around their udders are cleaned ahead of milking time.


Brett Morris not only works hard on the farm- but also gives of his time to the industry, currently going through the officer chairs of the Cattlemen's Beef Promotion Board.
