Holstein breeders highlight their passion for cows.

Herds from coast to coast will be interviewed to talk about their dairy operations and the passion they have for the industry. The RFD-TV segment will last one hour. Some of the Holstein farms featured include:

Crave Brothers – Wisconsin

Four brothers operate a dairy farm and produce award-winning cheese at a nearby facility.

Maple Grove Farm – Vermont

A young couple will detail the daily challenges of farm life.

Maddox Dairy – California’s Central Valley

A multi-generational operation talks about producing milk on a large-scale dairy

Pappy’s Farm – Utah

Descendants from Greek immigrants, this three-generation family operation shares their American dream story.

So while the program will interview only Holstein herds, the message of wholesome nutritious milk is expected to be a constant from all producers. Regardless of which dairy breed is found on a farm, dairy operations take great pride in producing high-quality food for their neighbors, their friends, themselves, and consumers worldwide.

The segment will be entitled “Holstein America” and will be broadcast on Thursday, February 8, 2018, at 9 p.m. (Central time) on RFD-TV. The independent cable channel is available on many cable systems including DirecTV, DISH Network, Charter, Spectrum, Comcast, and AT&T U-Verse.

If you are unavailable to watch the show live or did not record it, the segment will be available on Holstein Association USA’s website, www.holsteinusa.com after the show airs.
