The dairy’s fans took to Facebook to praise Hatcher and her family.
“Congrats to the Hatchers! What a great thing! Hopefully the national exposure will lead to a greater demand for FARM STRONG and all your milk products,” one fan commented.
“Looking forward to watching Al milk a cow next week,” another comment added.
Many cattle veterinarians already are familiar with Charlie Hatcher and Jennifer Hatcher. Both are working veterinarians at Rock N Country Veterinarian Services on the farm and have been featured several times in Bovine Veterinarian magazine, including “‘Best practices’ good for all” and “So you want to be a mentor?”
