Dairy featured on RFD-TV
In Spring 2023,the College of the Ozarks dairy farm was featured on the television program, “Holstein America,” on RFD-TV. The video feature was created in December 2022 by a team of videogrophers and headed by Eric Grant, of Grant Company and in association with Holstein USA. Grant visited the campus and spent time in the dairy operation for a 24-hour immersive experience and during that time interviewed many of the dairy students and staff members on campus.
Devoted to hard work and the success of the dairy industry on campus, the dairy staff and students work together in a special and unique place on campus. They love what they do and are committed to their workplace. This becomes evident as guests visit and watch the cows being milked, walk through the barns with newborn calves, and interact with student workers.
Madison Calton, senior agricultural business major from Tishomingo, Oklahoma, said about the experience, “It has been fun to see our work showcased in this way. We don’t expect that, but it’s great to see others on our campus and beyond get a fuller glimpse of what we do and how rewarding it truly is. We are a family here in our workstation, and the animals are definitely a part of that.”
