Entering Farmer 20115
Owner of my own dairy herd and leasing the farm we are on. Milking 35 registered jerseys. We do not have employees so I am the herd manager, breeder, responsible for all feeding and milking and animal health care. Been an owner for 4 years but managed other dairy herds prior for a total of 4 years. Have been milking cows for the last 17 years as just a Herd's person.
Reason: Leaving this farm because it has been sold to a wealthy landowner that is not interested in farming. If we are to continue with our future in dairy it is time to find a different and better suited location.
