When a Missouri dairy farmer headed out to milk his cows in April 2017, he made a shocking discovery. More than 30 of his herd were laying on the ground dead. But what had killed them?
Misty and Jared Blackwelder own an organic dairy farm near the city of Cabool in Missouri. The couple had worked hard to rear their herd, which consisted of 150 cows.
Jared’s father, who had raised beef cattle, had inspired the couple to get into farming. So in 2007, Jared and Misty decided to go it alone and establish their very own dairy farm.
