During the first week of September, five S&S Jerseyland employees went to a calf training seminar provided by Land O' Lakes. This professional training focused on practices and protocols that will be implemented at our new calf facility. One of our goals is to provide our animals with professional care by people who have been trained and specialize in calf care.
Jerseyland Dairy is unique compared to most farms offering a variety of different jobs from working with new born calves, in the barns, or on the cropping team.

Our heritage. Our passion. Our business.
100% home grown
Many of you probably have seen that we are currently breaking ground nearby. This ground breaking is exciting for the farm as we can finally say we are 100% home grown. We are going to be bringing our baby calves from off site to our new calf facility. This will make certain our calves are being provided with the special care each one of them requires and deserves.
It's time to start cozying up into our winter gear
Now that the cooler temperatures have approached it's time for our baby calves to start enjoying their winter gear. These calf jackets allow the calves to utilize the energy they consume from their milk for growing purposes rather than trying to stay warm. Our calves also have the luxury of being housed in temperature controlled rooms once born. This allows the calves to be protected from the frigid weather that we are provided with from Mother Nature.
The harvesting season is wrapping up
It is important for us to harvest the crops at the right time to ensure high quality feed is being provided for our Jerseys. In the fall, we harvest corn silage, high moisture corn, dry corn, and soybean. Through the harvesting season we are always testing the crop as it arrives at the farm making sure the moisture levels are consistent from load to load and from field to field.
