Josh and Julie grew up around farms; however their parents did not continue milking cows. Josh and Julie decided to get back into raising calves because of all the request for team penning at their families JJ Arena facility. In the Fall of 2008 we started out with 15 Holstein calves. We knew they would not be as fast and strong as other beef; however they where in our budget. Now in 2015 we raise from bottle to finished around 75 Holstein Steers, 30 Guernsey every year and around 30 cow calf operation. 2016 will be our first year finishing over 100 Steers.
Our kids Josie and Jace are starting to get more involved and are in charge of naming each calf, we have the Seven Drawfs, Frozen characters and you name it will have a calf named after it.
