Penn State Extension Dairy Team

Dairy farmers are known for innovation and thriftiness. The Penn State Dairy Team is looking to share "farmer hacks" that have made life easier for you on the farm or have helped in some way increase profitability. How have you recycled, up used or implemented a DIY project on your farm? Share those ideas here (photos) and we may feature your idea to help other farmers.

To kick off our "Farmer Hacks" series, I am sharing with you a way to keep your towels clean during milking. It is important to keep towels clean to limit contamination during milking and out of the "splash zone". This producer took a plastic tub and cut a whole in the top so that he could easily get clean towels when he needed but it also limited the amount of dirt/manure that could get in the towels while in the parlor.

Don't forget to share your innovative ideas!

Veterinary experts offer advice after pet cat tests positive for COVID-19 in Pa. | Penn State University

"The few reports of animals testing positive are believed to be cases where the animals got the virus from close contact with infected humans, and so far, there is no evidence that animals can transmit it back to people."
