Questions about our Animals

Why are dairy cows skinny?

The short answer is genetics. We raise registered Brown Swiss dairy cows, and just like all dairy cows they have been bred over time to produce more milk. As a result, their bodies are very efficient at converting the food and water they consume into milk.  Conversely beef cows have been bread over time to convert what they eat into muscle and fat.  That is why dairy cows are skinnier than beef cows.
