OSAKIS, Minn. — Bruce & Rose Asfeld of Osakis will host the 2019 Todd County Dairy Field Day on Tuesday July 30th from 10:30am -12:30pm. Asfeld’s farm is located at 10804 137th Ave, Osakis, MN, which is right at the top of the I-94 West Union exit. Watch for signs. Refreshments and ice cream treats will be provided.
Bruce and Rose Asfeld started dairy farming in 1994 at their current site near West Union. Their farm has undergone many exciting changes over the years. They currently milk about 125 Holsteins in a double 8 swing parabone parlor with automatic take-offs that was retrofitted into their tiestall barn in 2009. The freestall barn started out as a compost barn and 104 stalls were installed in 2012. Part of the barn remains as a compost bedded area for special needs cows. Future farm goals are to build a new heifer raising facility as well as a hay shed.
To promote good herd health practices when visiting farms, please wear clothes that have been washed and not worn in other livestock facilities since washing. Plastic boots will be provided. For more information or any questions please contact Brenda Miller at the Todd County Extension Office: 320-732-4435 or email@example.com
