A promotional landmark Byingtons paint one-of-a-kind sign on barn to advocate, show love for dairy By Krista Kuzma

LEWISTON, Minn. – When the Byingtons are asked where their dairy farm

is located, they don’t have to do much explaining. “We tell them it’s the farm with the ‘I love milk’ sign near the Lewiston exit on I-90. Then they say,


Parker Byington’s sister, Miranda, nishes painƟng the sign on the family’s barn in Lewiston, Minn. The reason the Byingtons painted the sign is two-fold – to honor the past and history of their family’s dairy farming journey and promote milk in a posiƟve way.


The Byington family – (from leŌ) Parker, holding Kash, Katherine, holding Gus, and RusƟn – painted a sign that says “I love milk” on their barn on their 425-cow dairy near Lewiston, Minn.

‘Oh, that’s your farm?’ because that’s the icon they remember,” Parker Byington said. Since painting the sign in July 2016, Parker and Katherine Byington’s dairy has become somewhat of a landmark in the area. The couple has three children – Rustin, 3, Kash, 2, and Gus, 4 months – and milk 425 cows near Lewiston, Minn. The reason for painting the sign, which reads, “I love milk,” with love being

represented by a heart, is two-fold. The rst is to honor the past and the history of their family’s dairy farming journey. The Byington family, along with Parker’s parents, moved to a dairy farm near Lewiston in 2015 from Moses Lake, Wash. While dairy farming in Washington in the early 1980s, Parker’s aunt came up with the idea to paint the sign on the family’s parlor. It consisted of green letters and a red heart.

“It’s well known back home. It stands out and is out of the ordinary,” Parker said. Although the Byingtons have established themselves in Minnesota, they said it has been an adjustment leaving the place where they grew up. To make it easier, the Byingtons wanted to bring a piece of their Washington life with them to Minnesota. “It’s our way of saying Turn to BYINGTONS | Page 3

The Byingtons wanted to create the sign on their barn in Lewiston, Minn., to mimic the sign the Byington family rst painted on their barn in the 1980s when they lived in Moses Lake, Wash.

this is home for us now,” Katherine said about why they painted the sign. “It’s tradition for us. We love what we do, and we love that we can share the sign, especially being so close to I-90.” They mimicked the sign back home, using the same block lettering; however, the letters are black instead of green. Positive promotion is the second reason for painting the sign on their barn. “People drive by on [Interstate] 90 and will honk. We don’t know if it’s for the sign or just to honk,” Katherine said. Either way, the sign is being noticed by others. Their farm, located along a frontage road right off the heavily traveled interstate, is in clear sight to share a message with

drink it more than anything else in this house,” she said. Katherine said Parker also drinks a special milk-based beverage every day, and sometimes twice daily in the summer. It consists of Nesquick made with milk along with three scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream. “He works hard burning off the calories every day on the farm,” Katherine said. That image – the one of the hard working dairy farmer – is one the Byingtons hope people will connect with their sign. “I think ‘I love milk’ brings out the personal side of dairy farming. We’re people, too, and it’s more than a job for us,” Parker said. The Byingtons decided to paint the sign on their barn in July 2016, after taking over ownership of “I think ‘I love milk’ brings the farm at the beginning of year.

Turning a new corner in his dairy career Solberg builds rotary parlor for 450-cow herd By Brittany Olson

ELK MOUND, Wis. – On the Solberg family dairy farm tucked away in the wooded hills a few miles east of Elk Mound, Wis., a shining new rotary parlor goes around and around three times per day until all the cows are milked. Milking 450 cows, Kurt Solberg, who farms with his parents Larry and Cora, feel their near facility is unique because the number of cows they milk is less than what they typically see with a rotary. The Solbergs started milking in the rotary on Aug. 11. Before that, the family was milking 330 cows in a

double-8 parlor. Along with the rotary, the Solbergs added a new freestall barn, which helped them begin a new chapter as a dairy farm family. The original double-8 was showing its age, and the cows were milked around the clock. “We milked 24/7 with maybe 45 minutes between shifts to wash everything down before starting all over again,” Solberg said. “It [came down to] either building a new parlor or selling the cows.” In addition, with the barn sitting on top of a hill and the parlor located down below, the cows had to walk outside and downhill to be milked, and then back up the incline to eat and rest after milking. The Solbergs researched their options before deciding to build a 32-cow DeLaval rotary


A robo�c dipping arm coats each cow’s teats in postdip a�er milking before she steps off the rotary. Solberg credits the dipping arm with saving him from hiring another employee.


Kurt Solberg milks 450 cows near Elk Mound, Wis. In August 2017, Solberg began milking his herd with a rotary parlor.

parlor on the same hill as the barn so cows would no longer have to walk up and down a steep hill going to and from the parlor. Instead of going with a double-16 to milk the same number of cows, Solberg explained the family’s reasons for choosing a rotary. “The rotary sets the pace of milking, and I liked the cow comfort aspect of it as well,” Solberg said. “I prefer a quiet, laid-back atmosphere for milking, and rotaries are so quiet. You don’t have all the air noises that you hear in a typical parlor. It also allows for future expansion without having to add on to

a different parlor …” Construction on the freestall barn and newly enclosed holding area began in the fall of 2016, with cows being moved into the barn the following January. Ground was broken on the new parlor in the spring of 2017. Solberg Dairy also had a robotic dipping arm installed to dip cows’ teats after milking. When the robotic arm is down and needs repairs, dip cups hang from posts on standby so cows can be dipped manually before they leave the parlor. “In theory, it works great. The rst couple of weeks

were a headache, but it saves me from having to hire one more employee to dip cows so I only need to milk with two people,” Solberg said. The change from the old parlor to the new milking center in terms of cow comfort has been a drastic one. “They’re in a much better environment than before,” Solberg said. In addition to improved cow comfort during milking, milking time has reduced to four hours per shift, compared to over seven hours per shift before, minus Turn to SOLBERG | Page 5

the time it took to clean up the old parlor before the next milking. “We spend more time cleaning and washing everything down, though,” Solberg said. In a stroke of incredible timing, the Solberg family was thankful to have the cows in the rotary as soon as he did because the original parlor suddenly burned to the ground two weeks after the rst milking in the new facility. “It was built in 1967, so it was pretty old,” Solberg said. As Solberg Dairy comes close to the oneyear anniversary of milking in the rotary, they are content with the changes they have seen as far as a quieter, more peaceful environment to milk cows in while cutting milking time by nearly half. So much so, that there isn’t anything they would change if they could do it all over again. “I don’t think I’d change anything yet,” Solberg said.

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Soil and grazing was the broad topic for a seminar presented by dairyman Francis Thicke on Feb. 22 during the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) conference in La Crosse, Wis. Thicke and his wife, Susan, milk 80 cows on their grassbased Radiance Dairy near Faireld, Iowa. The Thickes process their milk on the farm and market their dairy products by way of local grocery stores and restaurants. Thicke has a doctorate degree in soil fertility and has been the national program leader for soil science for the USDA’s Extension Service. Thicke began his presentation by talking about organic production and organic certication. “[Organic production] is a system that … integrates cultural, biological and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity,” he said, citing the National Organic Standards (NOS). Getting a farm certied as organic involves using allowed substances and shunning those that are not allowed, he said. Those that are allowed are not synthetic.

Kuhn Knight 8141 Manure Spreader - $31,000

However, some synthetics are allowed. These, according to Thicke, include vaccines as long as they were not made using genetically modied organisms (GMOs). Likewise, synthetic trace minerals are allowed, as are synthetic vitamins. Thicke said synthetic soaps and sanitizer are OK to use on an organic farm, too. Also on the approved list are synthetic electrolytes and synthetic anesthetics, including lidocaine and procaine. Just because a product is not synthetic doesn’t mean it’s allowed in organic dairying, Thicke said. The list of prohibited, nonsynthetic substances includes strychnine, arsenic, lead salts and sodium nitrate. Thicke touched on what he called key dairy standards. All feed must be certied organic. Breeding stock must come from certied organic animals. Animals treated with antibiotics and other synthetics must be removed from the herd. The living conditions of animals must accommodate health and natural behavior. Livestock must have access to pasture. The ruminant grazing rule states, “Dairy cows must get a minimum of 30 percent of their dry matter intake from pasture during the grazing season,” Thicke said. And, they must be on pasture at least 120 days a year.

Thicke said his Jerseys graze 200 or more days each year. His cows get 85 percent of their dry matter from pastures. On the origin of dairy animals for organic herds, Thicke said the national rules allow a whole-herd conversion from conventional management to organic one time. During that conversion, the animals must eat organically grown feed for a year. After the conversion period, Thicke said, “All animals must be under organic management from the last third of gestation.” Shifting his talk to soil, Thicke compared ecological agriculture to what he termed industrial agriculture. Ecological agriculture, Thicke said, embraces biodiversity, is self-sufcient, and conserves and recycles resources. Industrial agriculture, he said, relies on monocultures – one crop per eld or farm – and requires many off-farm inputs. For example, a cropping system of continuous corn loses more nitrogen from its soil than a system that relies on perennial crops like alfalfa. Thicke cited a study conducted from 1990 to 1993 in Minnesota. He said that study found that elds of continuous corn

“Our soil loss is not sustainable. [...] Half of Iowa’s topsoil has been lost or eroded from its original site.” FRANCIS THICKE, DAIRY FARMER

lost 194 pounds of nitrogen per acre through drainage tile. A eld of alfalfa lost six pounds of nitrogen per acre by way of drainage tile. Preventing soil erosion is important, too. Thicke said Practical Farmers of Iowa urges the use of cover crops. One of the group’s messages is, “Don’t farm naked.” On the basics of soil health, Thicke said there are three principles. One is to have living plants and roots in the soil at all times. A second principle is to till as little as possible. That’s because disturbing the soil helps break down precious organic matter. The third principle, according to Thicke, is to encourage plant diversity and not just one, two or a few crops. Organic matter in soil can do seven things. It’s an energy source for microorganisms. Organic matter provides nutrients to plants and soil microbes. Organic matter improves soil’s structure and tilth. Erosion is lessened when soil contains organic matter. Organic matter helps soil hold more water. Soil aeration is better when organic matter is present. Diseases are suppressed. “Our soil loss is not sustainable,” Thicke said about erosion. “The soil erosion rate for corn and soybeans in the Midwest averages 5.7 tons per acre, per year. Soils form at a rate of 0.5 ton per acre, per year. Half of Iowa’s topsoil has been lost or eroded from its original site.” Sometimes the erosion is much worse. Thicke said during Iowa’s 2008 oods, 10 percent of the state’s cropland lost 20 tons of soil per acre. “We need more-resilient systems on the land,” Thicke said.

There’s more good news when it comes to yogurt as part of a healthy eating pattern and improved heart health. A new study published in the American Journal of Hypertension showed that eating two or more cups of yogurt a week is associated with a lower risk for developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) in adults who already have high blood pressure. The large-scale observational study, funded by the dairy-farmer-founded National Dairy Council (NDC) and others, is the rst of its kind to examine the relationship between eating yogurt and reduced CVD risk in hypertensive adults. Nearly 75 million Americans have high blood pressure, which increases the chances of having a heart attack or stroke – two of the leading causes of death for men and women in the United States. Earlier studies have shown a benecial link between consuming dairy foods, including yogurt, and some diseases related to CVD, including type 2 diabetes. This new study suggests people with high blood pressure may have a reduced risk of heart attack or stroke if yogurt is part of their regular diet. “People who have high blood pressure are already at risk for cardiovascular disease and this study indicates that eating yogurt just two or more times a week is something easy and tangible that may help,” said Dr. Mickey Rubin, Vice President of Nutrition Research at NDC. In the study, data from 55,898 females (ages 30-55) in the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) and 18,232 males (ages 40-75) in Health Professionals Follow-up Study (HPFS) was analyzed to evaluate the association between eating yogurt and CVD risk among adults with high blood pressure. The results showed eating at least two cups of yogurt per week was associated with a 30-percent reduced risk of heart attack for women and a trend for a 19-percent reduced risk of a heart attack among men. During a follow-up period, eating one cup or more of yogurt per week was associated with an approximately 20-percent lower risk of coronary heart disease or stroke. Finally, regular yogurt eaters in the study who followed the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which includes low-fat dairy as a key food group, showed an associated risk reduction of CVD of 16 percent and 30 percent in women and men, respectively.

Get to know Mandy Molitor of Watkins, Minn.

What dairy or ag-related extracurricular activities are you involved in? I am involved in 4-H and FFA. Why are you involved in these activities/organizations and what is your favorite? I got involved in FFA and 4-H because all my siblings were involved in them. It ts the lifestyle I have grown up with. 4-H is my favorite because I love being with people who have same interests as me. They understand my kind of lifestyle. I am also part owner of Molitor Club Lambs and this is a way for me to present our ock at county and state levels. Tell us your best experience during your time in these activities/organizations. Obviously, it is showing at the county and state fair. I am a very competitive person and the excitement of being in the show ring against many people I know is amazing. What’s your favorite social media and why? Snapchat, because I am able to send cute pictures of the animals on the farm to all my friends. What are your career aspirations? My plans for the future involve attending a four-year college and majoring in animal science. Within my major, I plan to explore many different classes and career options in the agriculture eld. I am interested in learning more about animal nutrition as well as animal business management. I also plan to extend my sheep ock with my brother. What is something you’ve learned from being involved in these activities/ organizations? I have learned that hard work and dedication pays off. Who do you look up to and why? My parents because I have seen them go through hard times on the farm, but they keep working hard. Tell us something about yourself that many people don’t know. I would wear a plaid shirt and jeans every day if I could. Tell us some of your duties on the farm. I am involved in all aspects on the dairy farm. There isn’t anything I can’t do. If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be and how would you change it? I would change agricultural prices. I would implement a quota system to help keep supply and demand in line so farming can be protable for all farmers.


Mandy Molitor is a senior at Eden Valley Watkins High School. Molitor and her family – parents, Ron and Lori; siblings, Shannon, Mitch and Travis – dairy farm in Stearns County near Watkins, Minn.

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 76 Head of Very Good Official DHIA Holstein & Composite Dairy Cattle

NOTE: This is a very good herd of young, well uddered, high producing Holstein and Composite dairy cattle. The herd has been on test for many years with current official DHIA record indicating a herd average of 2X 21,000 pounds milk, 4.2% 882 fat and 3.4% 714 protein. Tank average of 70 pounds with several over 100 pounds per day. No TMR and no BST ever used. SCC averages approximately 250,000. The cows are milked in a tie-stall facility and spend all day in a grass lot early spring through late fall and are let out daily during winter months.
