This isn't my typical posting, nothing direct about energy healing here, nor about soap...although really I could tie them both in here easily, so I will do it before I am done! This is more of a personal bit, as these are my Dad's dairy cows. Yesterday, I spent a few hours on the farm, mainly doing a trade, but also getting the opportunity to visit with my Dad, and to also bring home some raw milk.
My Dad is not much of a conversationalist, but if you engage with him about farming, he has no problem talking about what he knows. He grew up on a dairy farm, worked on one after leaving home, and has had his own farm since shortly after I was born, so it is his life and what he knows! Sometimes that does mean he might be a little isolated with what goes on with the rest of the world. Besides milking cows, he also farms a few grains, one being wheat. So, I joked with him about going out and cutting me some wheatgrass to make some juice, knowing that it is just coming up this time of year. I don't think he really knew about people drinking wheatgrass juice, so I told him about it and all it's benefits. I told him how some grow it in rectangle flat trays. He laughed! He then told me that he allows his cows to graze on part of the wheat field, and when they do, the milk production goes up! So, guess what, wheatgrass is good for cows too!
We also talked about fermented food as I shared with him some of my water kefir. He talked to me about how he also feeds his cows fermented food....as in silage. Silage comes from fermenting the whole plant! That's what goes in the tall blue silo! Just as fermented foods are good for people, they are also good for cows. When cows eat silage, they expend less energy digesting their food and more energy producing milk. Again, another way for milk production to go up!
So, what's my story really about.....mainly...not all dairy farmers give their cows hormones to boost milk production. It can happen with good sustainable processes. Also, it was great engaging with my Dad, we both learned some new!
So....happy cows produce milk with good energy. I drink that good energy milk and also use that good energy milk to make my raw milk based soap!
Wishing all good energy!
