农场旅游停止

Bart和Penny Cavanaugh Farm
Bart经营着一个极具富有成效的850母羊。 Bart刚刚通过冷的住房谷仓完成了新的驱动器,他曾经饲养过母羊和羊肉配对。柔性谷仓布局允许BART利用自供料器或栅栏馈线,以最佳利用饲料资源以匹配营养需求。这款谷仓设计有南墙上的窗帘,在夏季增加通风,以最大化羊羔舒适度。通过谷仓的驱动器的西南角添加了一个工作设施,可用于有效地进行分类,体重和疫苗疫苗。 Bart的Lambing Barn与他的过渡谷仓相连,使他能够有效地挽救更大的群体,并为新出生的羊羔提供更理想的环境。哺乳期间的栅栏喂养和自喂养被实施为劳动力节省实践。现有的杆谷仓已被改造并用于额外的eWE和羊肉对以及用于母羊的冷壳。还添加了箍谷仓以供额外的冷壳。 Bart和他的妻子Penny有四个孩子帮助羊手术。在父亲汤姆的帮助下,BART在羔羊和兄弟的帮助下雇用一些额外的兼职劳动力。 Bart的侄子卢克是一个全职员工,母羊有一些拥有的拥有。

Kevin和Rebecca Goeken Farm
Kevin & Rebecca moved to the family farm which had not run sheep before. Kevin began raising sheep as an additional income source for his young family.  As they exited the hog business, he has steadily grown ewe numbers and currently lambs over 1000 ewes. Part of their flock is accelerated lambing. Kevin and his father built a new lambing barn from excess materials from a hog building construction company. Lambs are fed out in hoop barns that were originally built to custom feed hogs. A permanent working facility has been constructed in one of the hoop barns consisting of a longer runway, scale and drafting chute so ewes and lambs can be vaccinated, sorted and weighed quickly and easily. He has also built additional hoop barns for ewe cold housing. Each ewe and lamb are identified by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags for efficient record keeping. Kevin utilizes multiple lambing periods for efficient use of his lambing barn and labor. Ewes are fed with a feed wagon in permanent homemade H bunks with a cement base. Kevin employs one full time person.

布鲁斯和卡拉和伊利炮手农场
Bruce & Karla started in the sheep business in 1996, with 25 ewes, when they decided to discontinue raising hogs and converted their facilities to sheep production. Since that time, they have steadily grown their ewe flock to about 850 ewes. They have done a nice job of utilizing existing buildings along with a new addition onto the lambing barn and have built six “hoop” barns to improve labor efficiency and management of their various lambing groups. They market a high lambing percentage because of the attention they pay to detail and the tremendous job they do of keeping lamb death loss low. They employ several low labor feeding systems such as self-feeding lactating ewes, fence line feeding systems and added a commodity shed for housing feed resources needed in fence line feeding. Bruce and Karla have a daughter Kallie and son Eli. Bruce and Karla were the recipient of the 2013 杂志 Lamb and Wool Program Outstanding Producer Award.

russ gundermann农场
Russ是绵羊业务的创新生产商之一。他和他的家人跑了大约450个商业母羊。他们使用多个羔羊周期系统来最有效地利用他们的设施和劳动力。他们用更新的谷仓结合了较新的建筑物,使他们的羊手术能够有效地使用它们的所有建筑物。 Russ非常重视对成功运作差异的小事。 Gundermann操作包括许多劳动力节省概念,使它们能够以最小的努力处理大量绵羊。 Russ对绵羊管理有很实际的想法,使这是一个人会从中学习。 Russ是2008赛季羊羔羊肉和羊毛计划优秀生产者奖的收件人。
