About Yule Lane
I graduated from UW-RF a couple years ago, and am now farming with my parents on the farm I grew up on. We milk 55 cows, we're an equal opportunity employer when it comes to cows: Guernseys, Red & Whites, Black & Whites, and a couple Jerseys and Ayrshires, and we recently began crossbreeding Holstein x Guernsey x Ayrshire/Scandinavian Red. We milk in one of the oldest still operating parlors in the area, a double-5 herringbone. Our cattle are housed in a freestall with a belt-feeder. We raise all of our own forages and grains, other than some purchased byproducts to supplement our soybeans. We raise our heifers on-site as well as feeding out our steers. (That last part is up for debate any given day)
I'll be getting married this fall, at which point my fiancee (also a UW-RF grad from a dairy farm) will be joining me on the farm. Eventually we plan to double the size of the herd to support the two families. We've also considered building an on-farm cheese plant at some point in the future.
