Winter Farming


When cold and messy weather comes, most of us can duck inside and get away from it. On a dairy farm, it means dealing with it head on. Cows have to be milked and fed twice a day whether it’s sunny and warm or frigid and nasty. Michael Williams of Williams Dairy south of Greensboro, North Carolina handles it every day.

  1. Having grown up on a WI dairy farm, these photos look right–wintertime on the farm was always much tougher work than spring or summer. Most things are more brittle and likely to break and all the cattle need to be fed and watered regardless of how cold out it is! Wintertime on the farm is tough!
