Dairy Farmers Making Healthy Choices

Specialty Dairy

Farmers Chad & Michelle

When you own livestock their needs often have to come before your own, and that commitment to animal care has been evident on all the farms we’ve visited. Manitoba dairy farmers, Chad & Michelle, enjoy their daily work in the barn with the help of their children, Ty & Callie. They are lifelong learners who are passionate about dairy nutrition, genetics and sustainability, but they also make time for off-farm interests. Cycling, skiing, snowboarding, hockey and figure skating keep this farm family moving. Advancements in technology, like the addition of an automatic milking system, have made it easier for them to manage the demands of their herd while leading an active lifestyle.
