Dairy farmers Leroy and Barbara Shatto, of Osborn, Missouri, used to sell their milk to cooperatives. Tired of losing money, the Shattos took a chance and bought the equipment necessary to bottle their cows' efforts for direct sale. Now in its sixth year, the Shatto Milk Company is a beloved brand as well as a tourist attraction. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today, the Shattos host the annual Family Day at the Farm
. Visitors can tour the milking shed, sample products, play games, pet baby calves and even lay hands on udders. The event is free. See shattomilkcompany.com
for directions and other details.
