Holiday greetings
"Men may come and go, but none will ever find a way to banish Christ from Christmas Day." - Helen Steiner Rice, "The Miracle of Christmas"

Christmas is about family, love and sharing. It is the time to open our hearts, think of others and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives.

All of us at Hansen's Dairy wish each of you a most blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year. We've appreciated your business and friendship and are looking forward to serving you in 2010!

Cow of the Month

December's Cow of the Month is Bo. She is 4 1/2 years old and has produced 48,969 pounds of milk in her lifetime. Bo is very special - her quality dairy traits make her the best-looking cow in the herd. She was bought as an embryo from Maryland and implanted into one of our cows. We didn't know if the calf would be a bull or a heifer, so we were lucky to get her! In her adult life, Bo has also had embryo transfer work done on her, so we have had two heifers and two bulls from her embryos. She has also had three calves naturally - one heifer and two bulls.

Bo is special because she is a Red Carrier, which means she can produce Red & White Holsteins, not just Black & White Holsteins.

Bo is a calm, gentle individual who loves getting attention. She loves haircuts, showers and getting photographed!
