Hi Ryan! My husband & myself rent a barn in Lordstown where we keep our cows. He does all the milking. Dreaming of our own place! :) Heard about Proud To Dairy thru facebook.(Progressive Dairyman) What a Great thing
Hi, Ryan, thanks for the welcome! Sorry for the delay in answering--when you wrote me in February, I was dealing with snow. Now, I'm tilling and planting garden. Things are great here in Arkansas! I was connected with this group by my best friend whose family has a Brown Swiss dairy. I don't have a cow/any cows yet, but am working towards that. I'm on an old fixer-upper single-family farm that I'm trying to restore and get back up and running again! Right now we mainly produce eggs for sale and garden produce.
What a hard worker you are! It was a nice time...the food was good and the band was GREAT! Got to dance...LOVE to be around young people! Met a lot of great people! I told my son to look out for you too! I can't wait to hear how they did! Oh...definately need to do a follow up story on my cheese LOL! :)
I really enjoyed our visit too! Sorry I am a bit of a "motor mouth"! I will be happy to send you some cheese...I hope to be in full processing mode in a couple of months! I look forward to seeing the video! Did you make it to Koetsier Ranch for the dinner? If you did...I didn't get to see you! Safe trip back!
I am familiar with proud to dairy through Penn State and Dairy Challenge. Emily Caldwell has introduced me to the website. I grew up on my family's dairy farm in Franklin County, PA. We are currently milking 115 registered Holsteins. I earned my bachelors degree in Animal Sciences at Penn State University last May. After graduation, I returned to my family dairy farm where I am still working along side my father as herd manager, etc... I do not currently have show cows of my own, however, I enjoy showing and I am working toward having a show herd one day. I am also a member of Farm Bureau and active on the Franklin County Dairy Princess board. What is your story? How are you involved in the Dairy Industry?
Hey Ryan, what an inspired piece you wrote about the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation. I Believe, too. Those of us who grew up on farms, even though we leave, never really lose that love for agriculture. My parents just transferred the farm to my brother this past year, and my sister and I are both behind him every step of the way. I am so thrilled to still be a part of the industry, even in some small way, so that future generations can have what I and my siblings had growing up. Thanks for letting others know that the Foundation is up and going strong.
yeah we have the land and an older barn that we are remolding. We are trying to get started as cheap as we can. It is my dads old barn that we are remolding and when we are done it will be a single 8 parallel. We just need some cows and some equipment to put in this barn.
Thanks for comments on my pics. The lady was from Milwaukee Wi that took casey's pictures. I was against it because of lack of money due to low milk prices last fall. After seeing the pictures I regret giving my wife a hard time. It's just Denise Casey Chunk and I and 1 hired man here so a lot of our family time is out in the barn.
