A few of you may remember the time way back, when there were a lot of small dairy farms in Trumbull County, most dairy cows were out on pasture from spring until winter arrived. Many of these pastures were not very good, just annual grasses and some weeds. They were often in the far back part of the farm and the cows had to walk down a long lane to get to them. They were good feed in the spring when there was plenty of rain and they made a lot of growth. But when the heat and dry weather of summer came, they weren't much good. Cows didn't have enough to eat. Milk production suffered.
