    As the daughter of a dairy farmer and an avid lover of cheese (apparently inherited from my Grandmother) I find this research to be extremely interesting. I grew up eating all kinds of cheese, and have continued to learn about it. I never really thought about where my cheese and other dairy products were coming from until recently. Once I looked at this project and needed to pick a culture within the Great Valley to study, I realized that farming, and then dairy farming were of great interest to me.

    There are even organizations that have formed such as The California Milk Advisory Board, Dairy Institute of California, and the Organic Dairy Conference. These organizations along with many others help create and promote legislation to keep family farms and corporate farms safe, promote family farms (examples in the Great Central Valley are Omega Farms in Stockton, Producers Dairy in Fresno, and
    Fiscalini Farms in Modesto) and safe farming practices, and create and raise standards for dairy products. Other groups that have formed are veterinary practices surrounding the dairy industry, which makes it so that farms are receiving medical care for their animals that is specified for the field.

    Dairy Farming Culture

    California may not be the Dairy or Cheese State as Wisconsin is, however it is the number one dairy producer in the country, with a cheese production very closely following Wisconsin. There are dairy farms all over Northern California, especially in the Central Valley where farming is prominent. While you may not think of dairy farming as a huge culture, it has created its own little subculture by forming organizations, printing various publications, and creating fields of medicine based on and around the dairy industry. Many large companies tend to use larger corporate farms for their dairy among other things, many family farms have become more public with their products as much safer and healthier products who also advocate treating their cows and goats well, which includes giving them proper medical care and food.
    Campaigns for dairy farming have been created recently in order to promote safe and healthy dairy farming. You may not really think about it, but the "Real California Cheese" commercials actually do have a real organization behind them promoting happy and healthy dairy production. I also am able to provide personal experience working in the field of dairy farming, as my mother was a dairy farmer in Israel when she was in her twenties. She was able to provide me with information on how dairy farming was thirty or so years ago, which shows how much it has changed since then.
