New Product
Hansen's Chocolate Milk

Hansen's Chocolate milk is now available at the Moo Roo and Hansen's Outlet in Cedar Falls. We have both gallons and half gallons on the shelf. $3.99 per gallon, $2.79 per half gallon. Our chocolate milk is 1% with 1/2 the regular amount of sugar as typical chocolate milk. We do not use high fructose corn syrup.

Cow of the Month


May's Cow of the Month is Lincon. We chose her in honor of Mother's Day, because she is the oldest mother on the farm. At 10 years old, Lincon has calved 8 times --- 6 heifers and 2 bulls. The majority of her daughters have black faces like their mother. She also has several granddaughters, so the family tree will be around for a long time. Right now Lincon is milking 130 pounds per day, and she has produced a whopping 183,190 pounds of milk in her lifetime. At $3/gallon, she would have $63,900 in milk sales! She is one of the few Hansen cows that will milk 200,000 pounds in her career. She obviously knows how to work and enjoys it. If you ever come out to the farm for a tour, look for the green ear tags --- she's the only cow with that color. Lincon is a gentle gal to work with and still has a young look about her. She will hopefully have more Mother's Days to come.

From a Valued Customer

Recently, I was chaperoning high school students on a trip away from this area. While there one of the students became ill and experienced a great deal of stomach cramping - so much cramping that she was teary and unable to participate in the event for that morning. As I tended to her she stated that she had drunk a glass of milk that morning. She went on to say that she hadn't eaten much in that past couple of days and wanted to get some good nutrition into her body for the day. I asked her if she had any history of intolerance to milk products and she said yes. As we visited, I suggested that she may be able to drink Hansen's Dairy milk because they do not homogenize it and other people have found that they can drink it without problems. I was not surprised when she said she drinks Hansen's milk at home and has no problems with her stomach. All ends well as she received the proper care and was able to join the other students.
