This Week's Events

 
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 3:00 PM
Visit the Kip and Jennifer Kauffman farm at 122112 Oxbo Rd., Stratford, Wis. for Transitioning Dairy Cows from Stored Feed to Pasture, 1 to 3 p.m., May 23. The Kauffmans set up a grazing-based dairy farm from scratch. They built their farm incrementally, starting with buying 80 acres in 2001. They rented out the cropland until starting on this journey. Jennifer milked a few cows and fed the milk to calves she raised. In 2011 they began their dream of building their own dairy starting with a small parlor and bedded pack housing for their planned herd of 35 Jersey cows plus replacements heifers. In December of 2011 they began milking the cows. The spring brought fencing pastures, building lanes, and grazing cows. Come learn how a small dairy can still get started today, what worked the best and what they would change.
