Milkmen

Milkmen

Following Francelj (and few others) on his chores on one of the last milk producing farms in the region. The set represents a day. There are 40 cows on the farm. His profession is in decline because the work is hard and ever-lasting. There is very little profit. Others would prefer to raise stock for meat because there is less work and more profit. Tests show that his milk is one of the best ones. It is not just the cows, the whole surrounding needs to be healthy. I.e. the pastures need multiple species of grass herbs and flowers, no pesticides, no fertilizers... Milk will continue to be produced, but in an ever more aggressive way, quality will suffer. It is important that we understand and appreciate good sources.
