Watch now! A Preview of DCHA’s Farm Tours

DCHA farm tours provide hands-on learning at two local, innovative dairy farms. This year’s tours will feature engaging on-farm demonstrations at Endres Jazzy Jerseys in Lodi, Wis., and Ziegler Dairy Farm in Middleton, Wis.
At Ziegler Dairy Farm, calves are group housed and fed pasteurized whole milk. They focus on consistent calf care protocols at the individual calf level. Ziegler’s heifers are custom raised by Scott and Bruce Hellenbrand. Three generations operate this farm, milking 1,200 cows. Fun fact: the third generation comprises five “millennial” brothers!
Endres Jazzy Jerseys focuses on managing every aspect of each life stage to keep

their Jersey calves at peak health. You’ll have the opportunity to see their strict, pre-fresh process and newborn calf care protocols first-hand.

These tours will highlight the latest practices and technology in the calf and heifer industry, including:
  • Pre-fresh pen management
  • Colostrum and vaccination administration
  • Calf care protocols
  • Calf nutrition
  • Calf and heifer barn design
  • Sanitation
