Are the cows that produce UDairy Creamery ice cream grass fed?
The University of Delaware Dairy Farm produces most of the forage that the milking cows consume. The cows graze on grass pasture when weather and the nutritional demands of the cows allow for it. The cows are also fed silage, a blend of fermented grass and/or corn plants, which is grown and produced on the 350 acre College of Agriculture and Natural Resource farm. The cows are also fed some supplemental gain, a very small component of their overall diet.
