Why the transition from tiestalls to freestalls?

  • Improved efficiency:

    Milk 2-3 times more cows per hour per milker

    One time per day feeding

    Less time spent bedding stalls

  • Improved cow comfort

  • Improved operator health and safety

  • Increased production and $

  • Improved quality of life


Farm trends l.jpg
Farm Trends

  • Total number of farms stable at ~75,000

    • But:

      • Fewer dairy farms

      • Relatively more cash grain operations

      • Many more hobby/low revenue farms

  • Major changes in the size structure of farming

  • Note: “Any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold….during the year.”
