Dairy Temps

Need a warm and helping hand?

A western Maryland couple is building a business filling the need of dairy producers for occasional help. The couple is offering their services as dairy temps. Operating under the company name of "Udderly Delite-Full", Dawn and Tim Smith travel a three-state area of Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania maintaining milking operations for farmers on vacation or otherwise occupied with planting or harvest.

The idea was developed by Dawn Smith, the daughter of a local dairyman who was forced to sell off his operation because of the lack of reliable help.
