A Time for Everything

I pulled up to the dairy and parked in my usual spot. I got out and fumbled around as I put my 7 week old into the stroller. My husband was combining soybeans in the field next to the barn so we began to stroll around as we watched the cloud of dust rolling behind the machine with the most beautiful orange sky in the background.  I sighed a bit as I let go all the pressure I had put on myself to “do” something today. Let me just say for the record that I was totally naïve in my view of how much…See More

Meet and Greet - Robot Style : An Update on the Cows of Hillside Farm

The saying with robot barns goes like this...3 days = No sleep3 weeks= They kind of know what's going on3 months= Things are rolling alongMy version would go something like this...3 days = Coffee!!!3 weeks = I guess this is going okay?3 months= Yes, the fetch list is short!This week marks 3 months since we moved into the new barn so I thought you all might enjoy an update.  The general stats are something like this:Milking Cows - 160Milkings/ Cow/ Day - 3.2Milk Production - Up 12 lbs/ Cow/…See More

Cleared for takeoff-my account of a robot startup

On the morning of August 5th, 2014 the black and white beauties walked through the milking parlor for the last time at Hillside Farm. As I watched them walk up the steep hill to the new barn, I felt every step forward pull at my heartstrings. It had been a long climb to get to this day.…See More

Proud to Dairy

With June and the celebration of June dairy month rapidly passing us by, I have been thinking about what it is I want to portray to all those folks who graciously read the stories I have to tell and the pictures I share. What an amazing opportunity to tell the world about the industry I love and I'm too tired at night to even pick my hands up to type.  That's summer on a dairy farm for ya. But when I opened this page to write what I hoped might be inspirational for all of you I found the answer…See More

We had a big group of heifers close to freshening and decided to keep them all.…See More
