OPEN AIR DAIRYING
A couple of young farmers from Dorchester are following the practice of Wiltshire farmer Arthur Hosier who in the 1920s wanted to keep his cows free ranging all the year round on a wholly natural diet by milking them outside in portable milking bails. The milk from this simple low cost system was deemed to be remarkably healthy as were Hosier's cows. Tom Foot and Neil Grigg have set up their enterprise with minimal cost and are very pleased with the quality of milk they are producing and pleased with the health of their herd. We don't know enough to endorse or criticise but perhaps you, the reader, might have something to say about the subject. If you do a google on the names of these two farmers you will be pointed to their site which will give you all the information you want.
