Considering I haven't posted on this blog in over 2.5 years, you might not have heard the news that we are no longer in the dairy business. We sold nearly half of our dairy cows in September 2022, then completed our full transition from dairy to beef when we sold the remaining Holsteins in late February 2023. I wrote about our final milking shifts on my Substack, which has more or less taken the place of this blog.
If you are wondering, life after dairy farming is quite enjoyable. My father and I still have a long way to go before we get our beef operation where we want it, but we are getting there.
I appreciate everyone who has supported and encouraged us throughout the years, and I covet your prayers as our family farm continues to move forward in a new direction. I don't anticipate posting anything new to this blog, but I'll keep the archives public for a little while longer. If you'd like to stay up to date with our new farming adventures, you can like our Facebook page, follow my Twitter/X account, or subscribe to my aforementioned Substack newsletter.
In closing, I am sharing a few links to different media stories about our farm leading up to and following our exit from the dairy business. Thank you all again so much for your time and attention, and have a "dairy" good day.
