June is Dairy Month. Hear about it from MayBelle.


Hello there, it’s your reporter in the field, (literally, I’m in a field in Wisconsin) Maybelle the dairy cow, here to inform the astute and awesome readers of this blog that June is National Dairy Month. Yeah, I know, cows don’t normally write blog posts, especially given the fact that our large hooves make it damn near impossible to type. Be that as it may(belle), here I am, for Magickitchen.com, roving around my electrically enclosed meadow (don’t pee on the fence…just sayin’) conducting interviews with my bovine buddies to get their thoughts on their very personal contributions to National Dairy Month.

As I wended my way through the herd, I heard various comments from my homies about how proud they were of the fact that they contributed the primary ingredient that’s used to create such healthy and delicious food products. For example, Martha stated, “moooo moo mooooo, mooo mooo mo.” Translation: “Just imagine where cereal would be without the fruit of my udders.”

I even managed to get a few grunts from Gus, the resident bull, and, I’m paraphrasing here, but he admitted that he has a severe case of utter udder envy…no BS! And that’s the hard hitting, breaking news that you’ll always get from this bi-colored Holstein.

Mary, who is as intelligent as she is beautiful, claimed that she was a bit disappointed in the fact that many of the humans who consume our dairy products don’t realize the fact that they contain essential nutrients, such as calcium, potassium, protein, and vitamins A and D. I then placed my hoof around Mary’s withers, which is no easy feat, even if I had feet, and promised her that I’d get the word out.

I then discussed the various ways our milk gets transformed into delectable delights to ensure that you humans get those vitamins and minerals you need to support good bone health, fend off osteoporosis and build lean muscle, with my BFF, Mae. She stated, “Whether it’s low-fat, no-fat, 1%, 2%, chocolate, butter or skim, there’s a type of milk out there for you! And don’t even get me started on the variety of cheeses, yogurts and flavors of ice cream to choose from!” That Mae is one smart cow that’s not easily cowed (admit it, that one made you smile).

So why not order a few tempting dishes from Magickitchen.com that contain some nutritious dairy products such as their cheesey Broccoli and Cauliflower with…you guessed it, cheese, or some silky smooth buttered carrots, or how about some macaroni and…wait for it…cheese, and what would their magic mashed potatoes be without milk…not so magical is my guess.

Well, until next June, this is your ungulate field reporter, Maybelle, reminding you to get your daily dose of dairy and to eat more chicken.
