Be nice to your cows, dairy consultant says

Treatment of cows is crucial to milk quality – even if that means talking to them.

Hey, it works on plants.

"You have to be aware of how they're feeling," said Fabian Bernal, a dairy consultant for the Dairy Farmers of America. "The more you can put them in natural surroundings, the better."
