We started on DHI test for the first time in 2013. We started back on milk test again in 2015, joining the ADGA Plus program. Milk test is more than just earning milk stars. We are able to monitor udder health via SCC (somatic cell count) with each test. We also participate in Linear Appraisal yearly. It has proved to be an invaluable tool when making breeding and culling decisions.
We both have full-time jobs to support our hobby farm endeavor. Casey has worked at Fancher Chair in Falconer, NY since 2005. Check out their website HERE. They are a great company to work for! Dianna has worked at the Randolph Veterinary Clinic in Randolph, NY for several years. Both veterinarians, and all the staff, are excellent people to work with. It would be nearly impossible to find a more compassionate vet clinic. Check out their website HERE.
