of Bokchito is the man.

Clay's story starts in Texas, when his best friend told him that he had fired his milkhand, and, like any good friend, asked Clay if he could help out. Low and behold,…

"I Support Dairy Farmers" - Facebook Style

For one girl who joined Proud To Dairy, getting a free profile and networking community just wasn’t enough. She had to get a hat too.

Sorry! That may have been some jealousy coming out in me! The girl I am referring to is Erin Jones. She was the 300th member to join PTD, and therefore, she received a free hat

from the PTD team. Pretty snazzy deal,

Hard Worker = Kipp Hinz

If anybody loves the dairy industry, it would have to be Kipp Hinz.

From Osceola Wisconsin, this hard working student has more on his mind than college-life activities…

Kipp is attending school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences in the Farm and Industry Short Course specializing in Dairy Herd Management.

He started working on the County Line Dairy Farm while in the 6th grade, a farm comprised of 60 cows in… Continue

O-H-I-O State Grad Takes on a BIG Challenge

During Marion County’s Annual Popcorn Festival in September, the Christmas by Candlelight in December, and even the Marion County Fair in the hot days of the summer, the lives on the dairy of Karl Wedemeyer are going on and work is never stopping.

White Diamond Farm, located in Marion Ohio, is on its way up in cow numbers, production, and reputation.

Karl Wedemeyer is a recent graduate (and when I say recent, I mean Winter Quarter recent!) of The Ohio State University.… Continue

From Farm to Royalty: the Tale of a Wisconsin Princess

Haven’t you always wanted to be a fairy princess? Now replace the ‘f’ on fairy with a ‘d’ and answer the question…

It’s okay, we all know that ever since you were little you have wanted to be a dairy princess. From your days on the playground standing at the top of the jungle gym (aka-your castle), to your teenage nights you spent dreaming of your prince charming coming to rescue you from your top-story prison of a room.

(Sorry guys… must be a girl thing!)

And this… Continue

What are we fighting for?

This is the real question that all dairy producers, as well as all agriculture specialists, should be asking themselves. What are we, as an industry, as people, as entrepreneurs, essentially fighting for when it comes to animal welfare?

Tricky question huh?

Try this: Take about 5 minutes while you are reading this and ask yourself, "What am I, a dairy enthusiast, fighting for in the world today?"

Is it money? Is it pride? Is it passion? Is it to see the downfall… Continue

Nothing like a Wisconsin Gal


What more can one say about a name so influential in the dairy industry?

A whole LOT more, to be exact.

This Ayrshire–loving, hard-working gal is from Lake Mills, Wisconsin, and although she does not live on a dairy farm, she-

WAIT. She doesn’t live on a dairy farm? GASP. Shocking isn’t it? Believe it or not, there are people that work for the industry that are not working directly on farms, contributing more than just a few hours here… Continue

Member Feature: October: The Beginning!

When I was approached by Ryan Curtis to write blogs for Proud to Dairy, at first I was so excited!... and then the panicking started in and the doubtful questions started ringing in my mind; ‘ Who am I going to interview?’, ‘What am I going to ask?’ and ‘When am I going to have time to write this?’. I must say that after much deliberate thinking, I have concluded to write this first interview on, none other than, myself.


Okay, hear me out for two minutes (because my… Continue

Dairy Article :)

--- College dietician students have ‘dairy good time’ at local dairy farm.

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
