During a visit to Bartlett Farm in Concord Friday, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen said the recently-passed Farm Bill will provide support to New Hampshire’s dairy farms.
Co-owner Scott Bartlett, who runs the farm with his father, says his cows produce roughly 70 pounds of milk each day.
“We milk 70, we have about 130 total, including the young ones.”
But he says feeding those cows is the farm’s biggest issue.
“Load of grain comes here about every three and a half weeks, that’s $10,000.”
