Mower Conditioners cut a big
11'9" swath and condition

It's a wider version of our
well-known 5209. With it,
you cut and condition lots of
hay...every trip. And that
means you cut time.
Because the New Idea
simple and, al
goal is to increase their nearly
20,000-pound herd average
through fine tuning their feeding
program and through genetics.
For now, Casners feed total
mixed rations four times a day in
the freestall bunk along with hay
lage and com silage. Dry hay is
available to the herd anytime. The
CasStead acreage supplies all their
com silage and haylage. They buy
half of their grain feed and occa
sionally some baled hay.
But no matter what part of the
farm improves, it takes well-de
fined teamwork in a partnership
for real progress. At CasStead,
Doug oversees the milking and
breeding program, Gregg is in
charge of the fieldwork, and
Glenn keeps in touch with all
aspects of the operation.
Milking is shared by all. In the
winter, Gregg and his wife Kathie
switch milking every other day
with Doug and his wife Deborah.
Glenn’s wife Mary does the book
work and sister Diane feeds calves
and fills in where needed.
In the future, Glenn would like
to see milk prices stabilize while

ADA To Host
Media Milk Tour
SYRACUSE, N.Y. The American
Dairy Association and Dairy Council Inc.
(ADADC) is scheduling a spring media tour
to show people how easy it is to achieve a
well-balanced diet filled with a variety of
foods, including calcium-rich dairy products.
ADADC’s registered dietitians will stress
balance, variety and moderation in foods con
sumed daily. Some topics for discussion will
include: making wise food choices, under
standing portion control, balancing foods, and
choosing a variety of foods.
If you made a list of all the foods you con
sume in one day, how many of those foods
would you label “good foods” or “bad
Arc there foods that you love to eat but
know you shouldn’t? Are you totally con
fused by all the different health claims in the
press every day?
If you’re like most Americans, you’re
growing weary of being told what you should
and should not eat
The fact is, there are no “good” or “bad”
foods, only good and bad eating habits. By
practicing balance, variety and moderation,
all foods can fit into a healthy diet.
The dairy group is one of the most impor
tant food groups, and perhaps one of the most
misunderstood, in terms of what should be
consumed daily to ensure good health.
ADADC’s registered dietitians will be able
to explain the importance of including milk
and milk products in a daily diet. They will
team up with local nutrition experts to provide
listeners with simple and practical examples
of how to achieve better eating habits.
The American Dairy Association and
Dairy Council, Inc. is a dairy promotion orga
nization representing dairy farmers in New
York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
