FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — The California dairy cow found to have mad cow disease was very old for a milk producer and had been euthanized after it became lame and started lying down, federal officials revealed in their latest update on the discovery.
Twin Cities-based Kemps LLC has purchased Fargo’s Cass-Clay milk processing operation from Associated Milk Producers Inc.
Kemps and New Ulm-based AMPI announced the move Monday. Ownership officially changed hands at 12:01 a.m. today. Terms of the sale were not released.

While many are dealing with too much water on the land, plans for a massive dairy farm near Edgeley, N.D., have been derailed because there isn’t enough water in the ground, according to Ralph Friebel, president of Frontier Dairy.
A proposed 10,000-cow dairy farm near Edgeley, N.D., is still in the works, although the start of construction has been delayed until 2011 at the earliest, according to Ralph Friebel, president of Frontier Dairy. The operation may also come under a new zoning ordinance passed by Wano Township in May.
I write in response to Tracy Muske’s May 6 letter to the editor, “Low milk prices make it hard for family dairies to survive.”
Low milk prices have made it very difficult for all dairy farms to survive. As a member of the board of directors of the North Dakota Dairy Coalition, I know firsthand that existing dairies have always been our top priority.
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Citizen’s Board today in St. Paul will hear the case to allow Excel Dairy, a rural Thief River Falls mega-dairy, to once again fill its barns and produce milk.
The dairy has been closed and empty of cows since January 2009, when the state filed air quality regulation violations against the dairy and its parent company, the Dairy Dozen. Earlier this month, Excel filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, but plans to re-open as soon as possible, said company owner/manager Rick Milner.

In the midst of what have been good years in agriculture generally this decade, the dairy business in North Dakota has nearly nose-dived.
The number of dairy cows in the state is down 60 percent in the past 10 years alone, going from about 50,000 in 2000 to only 21,000 milking cows this month, falling 4,000 in just the past year, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report Friday.
That’s a far cry from the 700,000 dairy cows found in the state in 1934, according to USDA statistics. And no doubt the fewest since the 19th century.

I read the “Mega milk” article on the front page of The Jamestown Sun March 18, which was written by Keith Norman.
Water is a precious and valuable resource. It is needed to sustain all life. For many residents who depend on wells in the rural areas and towns of North Dakota, it is an expensive task to obtain and maintain good-quality drinking water.
