Congratulations to Dan Martins and his family who dairy farm near Luana, Iowa. Dan Martins won a yearling heifer, Ralma Epic Camry, from the Schmitt family farm in Rice, Minn. Camry will find a new home on the Martinses' 150-cow dairy near Luana, Iowa. Martins and his wife, Coleen, farm together with their two sons, Adam and Drew, who recently returned home to be a part of the farm. Their daughter, Bailey, who is a sophomore in high school, also helps and is a part of the farm. "You've got to be kidding me. I can't believe I won. It makes good news for a rotten year," said Martins, who was Christmas shopping with Coleen when he received the phone call that he had won the heifer. Martins was referring to the wet year in the field that caused his farm's crops to be behind one month.
