Our cows may be here to produce milk but we want them to have a really good life while they do it. They graze fresh grass outdoors during the summer and stay indoors during the winter. We choose Holsteins for their ability to produce lots of milk and milk solids from a mainly grass based diet.
All our cows are born here on the farm. Weaned from milk at two months, turned out on pasture at six months, bred at seventeen months, and after having their first calves at twenty-six months are introduced to being milked.
By the time they are three years old, these hard-working girls are all business, producing milk of exceptional quality and providing a perfect foundation for a long life at Viewmount. We believe that a cow that's comfortable and well taken care of is a valuable asset - we take care of her, she takes care of us.
