Did you know that South Dakota has 150,000 dairy cows that contribute to your dairy intake? Stores use local dairy milk to stock their shelves to keep their milk fresh. It is that easy to shop local! Those milking cows consume 1,026,564 bushels of soybean meal every year that is produced by our very own soybean farmers!
