This week the news of a whole bunch of Skittles candy falling off a truck and covering a road not far from our farm spread like wildfire. The candy was destined to be fed to cows and that raised a whole bunch of questions on why farmers would feed their cows candy and if it was healthy to feed cows candy. Thankfully my dear friend Laura Daniels who is not only a dairy farmer but also a dairy cow nutritionist, did a video explaining why in the world cows would be fed skittles. Take a few minutes and learn about the amazing dairy cow!
