Continued from NICC | Page 4 A 49- by 275-foot addition to the freestall barn was constructed, as well as a 23- by 125-foot area for the robotic milkers, ofces and a meeting room. Other improvements included a 150- by 105-foot square basin manure pit with a two-stage system for sand settling, headlocks in the entire barn and sand bedding throughout the entire facility, including the existing stalls. The ceiling was insulated and the freestall barn was converted to tunnel ventilation. They installed cow brushes in the new part of the barn. Brushes will be added to the older areas of the barn prior to the open house on March 27. They also added a Juno feed pusher. It is programmed to operate 10 times a day from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m., and it stops during feeding times. “Cow comfort was a top priority,” Kregel said.

“With the insane weather we had that morning, I’m pleased and impressed that producers ventured out to hear our line-up of speakers and visit with our vendors. It tells me that the event (Carver County Dairy Expo), which is such a tradition in the area, is still planned with farmers in mind, and they appreciate having it offered to them.” --Abby Neu University of Minnesota Extension Educator Agriculture Production Systems

“It was pretty overwhelming. It’s a lot faster pace then it is on TV. The accidents are much more up close and personal. It was crazy to see them driving around at such high speeds bumping around and keep going. The military y over with the ghter jets was great. It was cool to see everything.” --Nick Pramann 65-cow dairy farmer from Clearwater, Minn.

“I walked out of the milk house and wrapped up the cord and when I looked up there was a tame duck on the man hole. I started driving and he jumped off after 10-feet. At the same farm they had a turkey and I had shiny, chrome wheels on the truck and the turkey kept pecking at the wheel because it saw its reection.” --Dan Burggraff milk hauler for Burggraff Milk Line The last word is compiled by Mark Klaphake and Krista Kuzma.
