The #10GallonChallenge Takes Over Social Media

With the state of milk prices today, we’re happy to see someone trying to help dairy producers and also people in need at the same time. Dairy Herd Management just published another amazing story that I just had to share. Have you heard of the #10GallonChallenge?

Ty Higgins is a farm broadcaster.
