Sunday March 12 edition of Seattle Times featured Eastern Washington Family Farmers co-leader Jason Sheehan. Jason’s dairy was one of fifteen in the Sunnyside area that suffered the heart-breaking loss of dairy cows.

We applaud Erik Lacitis’ coverage which not only conveyed the numerous challenges our dairy farmers are facing, but the fact that this blizzard was extremely abnormal, that farmers did all they could to save their cattle, and the loss of these valuable animals has hit them and their farm employees very hard emotionally.
