My husband and I dairy farm between Fox Lake and Beaver Dam, Wis., and I also work full time for East Central/Select Sires in Waupun, Wis. From my firsthand experience, I applaud the Knigge family’s work to share a dairy message with “The Bachelor.” I was “Dory the Dairy Farmer” on the NFL Network Packers versus Lions commercial in late 2015. Similar to the Knigge family's response, the best part of my entire experience was educating the film crew and NFL Network employees about dairy farming — and agriculture in general. They asked great questions!

Thank you for this article. I was glad to read it before the episode aired.
