On our way there, we had some extra time to have a picnic lunch outside of the church in Cartago. Very fun and relaxing.
The farm was the same direction as Volcán Irazú, which I visited several weeks back. It was a breathtaking drive, and as usual, the cows have the best view in the whole country. Enjoy the photos of the farm!
Cows in the pasture. Almost all dairies in Costa Rica utilize a rotational grazing system. This farmer does a great job of this, and has 45 small pastures to keep his 50 cows in for one day. After that day, he moves them to a new pasture to allow the grass to grow back. This ensures that the grass is of the highest quality for the cows everyday. How cool, right?
Dad and the dairyman, Álvaro, checking out some of the grass that he cuts to feed the cows at night when he brings them up to the lot.
