Cow of the Month

Enormous August's Cow of the Month is Enormous. She celebrated her fourth birthday on June 17 and has delivered three bull calves - "all ginormous," according to herd manager Blake. 


Blake named her Enormous because she was a large calf at birth. Now she has a large head and towers over her herdmates, but Blake says she is a gentle giant. Enormous also has long teats, so she would make a good cow for milking by hand - except that at 130 pounds (15 gallons) a day, it would take a while to milk her out! She had the highest daily production in the herd on test day last month.

Cash Cow

We had one big CA$H COW winner in July! In August, we will mark 10 jugs with $100 each (look inside the jug at your label when it's empty). Since we mark them at the beginning of the month, your best chance to find a large prize is in the next few days!

  Remember, there are still 10 jugs EVERY WEEK marked with a $5.00 prize, so keep your eyes open! View details here on our website.

  There were two $5 winners in July: Misti Davis and another customer, both from Cedar Falls.

Mark your calendars!


Aug. 25: Taste Iowa food expo in Conrad


Sept. 9: 2nd Annual NIFFP Farm Crawl 

Meet the Hansens!  


Each month we will feature one of the Hansen family members who make the business a success. This month we meet Jeanne Hansen.  

Jeanne Birthday and Age: Feb. 23, 1948 (64)

Favorite ice cream flavor: Chip and Cherry

Role at Hansen's Dairy: I try to keep things together! I schedule and do tours, and I do the running where anybody needs me.

What is a typical day like? Crazy! I open the store out here first thing in the morning. I usually try to take time out for Bible reading, then make breakfast. Then I make my phone calls to the stores and others to plan my day and check my schedule. I coordinate tours, go to workshops and meetings, and just try to do what needs to be done. I watch grandkids and try to keep up the tour center.

Family and life: I live in the dome on the farm with Jay. Our kids are Brent, Brad, Blair, Blake and Lynn and we have 15 grandkids. I haven't had too much free time, but I do like to visit friends in nursing homes, play with the grandkids and visit Lynn in Omaha. I'm also looking forward to fishing in the pond on the farm.

Taste Iowa - August 25

Cooking with Hansens
Greek yogurt is delicious, creamy, and thick. It's great for cooking (or eating with fruit for breakfast). Here's an easy summer dessert that uses greek yogurt, just like what we have on special this month from Country View Dairy. Plus, the honey and cream cheese are available at the stores, too!

No-Bake Greek Yogurt Cheesecake
1 graham cracker crust, chilled and ready in the pan
2 packages of cream cheese (8 ounces each)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp lemon juice
Fresh berries and whipped cream (to garnish)


In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the honey, sugar and vanilla extract. Add in the Greek yogurt and lemon juice; mix until just blended. Spread the filling in the chilled graham cracker crust and smooth the top. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight, before serving.
