ingles dietitianWhat do dairy cows feed on?  

Bart Ramsey: They graze on grasses that we grow like ryegrass, bluegrass and fescue. In dry weather and from October to April that's not enough to provide them with the nutrients they need - they'd starve and not produce any milk if all they did was graze. We also feed them corn silage.

Sponsored: Sorghum syrup

ingles dietitianIn some of our Western NC Ingles stores you can find sorghum syrup from Harrell Farms in Bakersville, North Carolina.  Many people who grew up in the South refer to this syrup as “molasses” and use it in baking instead of honey, maple syrup,  molasses, corn syrup or sugar. Sorghum syrp can be spread on biscuits or toast or drizzled on pancakes or ice cream.
