Below is the link to a video about their farm.

The 6th of June was the first race of the Bond Auto Parts Triple Crown Series, with $1000.00 to win the event; it drew a lot of competitors.

When an employee of the American Dairy Association contacted Alyssa Holter about giving a tour of her family’s dairy farm, at first, she was a little nervous. “We have never actually done a tour of our farm for anyone other than our friends who stop by every once in a while, so to have the opportunity to show people outside the industry what dairy farming is all about seemed a little… Continue

I've been able to talk to students and professors in dairy science programs all over the place. I've learned so many interesting things and talked with so many interesting people. I've especially learned a lot about the university dairy herds.

I think it is neat that there are student-run university dairies. I can't think of a better way learn the ropes… Continue
