The Barczak family visit was full of adventures-possibly a future veterinarian! We had lots of fun showing the boys what the dairy was all about. Mom and dad enjoyed it too!

Yes, this is where the milk goes and gets picked up every other day. The milk gets tested in this tank before it leaves the farm and again when it goes to the re-load, Hagen transfer in Elkhorn. It gets tested there as well and sent off to its final destination for cheese production.

All the girls on the farm, including Harley, enjoy the comfy compost barn. Ventilation is critical and important in relaxing the cows so we invested money in "Big Ass" fans! The girls get fresh feed everyday, six times a day! The healthy ingredients are weighed, measured and balanced according to cow body mass and mixed together in a tumbler to make it palatable for the cows.
