Lu Ella and Donald Young - top herd  in production and dollar value in their county for 2010

"My wife, Lu Ella, and I have a 320 acre farm in Swift County, Minnesota. We plant alfalfa, corn, soybeans and wheat. We milk 50 Holstein cows in a tiestall barn. We raise all our own heifers and feed out our steers. We purchased this farm in 1966 and built a new barn in 1979. I have been using Growers for about 12 years. At the same time I started putting lime on all my alfalfa and have seen improvement in herd health and production. My current DHIA rolling herd average is 25,179, butterfat 983, and protein 766. I milk twice a day. My herd was top in production and dollar value in Swift county in 2010, according to DHIA records." Donald Young
