Discovering the Dairy at SwissLane Farms in Michigan

When I found out that I would get to go to Michigan for the Young Farmers & Ranchers Conference, I was immediately jazzed as I knew friends Annie & Jerry Link lived outside of Grand Rapids. They had invited me to visit her family’s dairy farm. Here’s an overview of what I saw. I will share more later about the milking barn, the new high tech center and maple syrup! You can read ahead at the Dairy Discovery blog for SwissLane Farms or on Dairy Discovery’s website!
