Customer of the Month
The July Customer of the Month is Patrick Trumbauer of Waterloo.

Patrick and his family fell in love with Hansen's milk when they stopped into the Waterloo store for an ice cream treat and grabbed a gallon.

" The kangaroo on the label made our kids think that it was kangaroo milk, and they said it tasted so good," he said. The family also enjoys the ice cream, cheese curds and beef products. "The Wagyu beef is so good with a nice sear and a beer," he added.

Patrick and his wife and enjoy shopping locally and trying new foods. They like knowing the story behind what they are consuming.

"Your products taste fresh, and that makes Moo Roo an easy choice to pick up local products," he said. "Spotlighting other Iowa-made products is also important to us as you are able to bring new products to the Cedar Valley." 

Thanks, Patrick! Customers of the Month receive a $5 gift certificate to use at our stores and two free hands-on tour passes to the farm (a $30 value). You could be chosen by filling out an entry form at our stores or through your comments on our  Facebook  and  Twitter  pages.
Cow of the Month
Next in our series of cows in the 150-pound club is the July Cow of the Month, La-Z-Girl (pronounced Lazy Girl).

La-Z-Girl is 5 1/2 years old. She was born Dec. 20, 2014, and we got the idea for her name when we set her on the easy chair (La-Z-Boy) in the cow office :) La-Z-Girl has given birth to four calves, three bulls and one heifer, which we named La-Z-Susan. She now also has a granddaughter named La-Z-River!

La-Z-Girl produced 150 pounds of milk on test day, which is 17 gallons per day. She has also hit the 100,000-pound lifetime mark. That puts her on par with her grandmother, Len, one of the oldest, most productive and genetically superior cows we've ever had at Hansen's Dairy. La-Z-Girl comes from a long line of quality cows and is sure to leave her own legacy as well. She is anything but lazy!
Cooking with Hansen's
Love your morning cup of brew, but looking for a cooler treat to start your day? Or a weekend brunch treat? These Creamy Coffee Frappes will hit the spot! I’d make the coffee a little stronger than you like, as the ice will dilute it. You can also use any number of Hansen’s Dairy Ice Cream flavors. I wouldn’t say no to some shaved Candy Kitchen Fudge to top it off, either! Remember to use this month's coupon on the coffee! For more simple recipes using local foods, check out my website at www.juliegrunklee.com.
