What is a cow-calf dairy?

Cow-calf dairies raise their dairy cows and calves naturally, with the calves suckling their mums until they are ready to become independent. 

Each cow-calf dairy will be unique for many reasons, including: farm size, breed of cow, grazing & land management, facilities, calving & milking frequency, what the cows are fed, as well as what dairy products are made and how they are sold. What unites them is the commitment to raise their cows and calves together.

Please feel free to contact any of the dairies listed to ask exactly how their cows and calves are kept and raised.
