Our dairy operation partners with theWorld Jersey Cattle Bureau in the demonstration on dairy feeding and management. We are a triple bottom line farm, where we measure success with the three metrics: profitability, how we benefit the community, and how we have a positive environmental impact.

And answering questions, and respecting our neighbors, and knowing that we also learn from them.
Testing and Precision Ag.
Precision Agriculture is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. The goal of precision agriculture research is to define a decision support system (DSS) for whole farm management with the goal of optimizing returns on inputs while preserving resources.
