The Chester County Holstein Club’s Field Day is a summer highlight for dairy farmers in the southeast corner of Pennsylvania.
We enjoy the food, our families, neighborly conversations, cow judging and a calf raffle.
My husband Duane and I hosted the event this year. A skeptical farmer approached me in our barn’s milking area.
I embrace conversations like this. I jokingly tell people a little-known historical fact -- dairy farmers invented skepticism.
“I don’t think we need exports,” the farmer said. “We need to stop focusing overseas.”
