Also in the Ithaca/Watkins Glen area, the cow whisperer — Melanie Janke. Ms. Janke knows by name (she named them) 175 of the 700 cows she milks on my friends’ dairy farm in Schuyler county. Her experience is vast, her wisdom the same — and there’s no one more sensitive to sick and needy livestock. And she’s gracious, too — she gave me some good pointers on cow handling. They worked!
