Dairy Dreams Shared.

You Live for these Dreams.

Your family. Your cows. The future of your business. Cargill helps feed these dreams of more milk production, better component efficiency, higher income over feed costs, heathier calves or simply a better quality of life. These are the stories of dreams meeting reality. These are the stories of how Cargill helps dairies thrive.

How did you celebrate?

This June, Cargill showed support for Dairy Management Inc. and MilkPep in the Love What’s Real campaign. During June Dairy Month, Love What’s Real traveled across the U.S. to bring awareness to childhood hunger and rallying people to donate to The Great American Milk Drive. While milk is the most requested item at food banks, it is often the least donated. On average, people served by food banks receive less than 1 gallon of milk per person each year. Last year, Cargill’s #PutYourHerdFirst campaign proudly donated 100,000 servings of milk to food banks in the Feeding America network through The Great American Milk Drive. This campaign was in conjunction with the launch of HerdFirst®,  a new line of advanced calf and heifer nutrition, while living Cargill’s mission of nourishing the world, and supporting the industries and communities they serve.

Though June has come and gone, we’re still encouraging you to give back and donate a serving of milk to The Great American Milk Drive!  Learn more about what the Cargill team is doing to support the dairy industry in our blog posts shared below.

Give Your Team the Right Tools to Succeed

Paul Colgan’s belief and leadership in people enables him to run a church congregation of 225 people while simultaneously managing a dairy that is home to several employees, 1,375 cows and 1,260 heifers. Paul is the dairy manager at Patterson Farms, Inc., a 6th generation dairy and crop farm that was established in 1830, now owned and operated by Jon and Julie Patterson.

The Dangers of Haystack Fires

May of this year brought over two inches of rain to the San Joaquin Valley in the matter of days, and with it a growing concern of haystack fires. I know we have fires like this every year, but farmers are even more vigilant now than ever.
