Dairying with 2,700 cows, Siemers Holsteins has been operating at the same site for more than 120 years.




*Extended comments highlighted in blue.

Our team works incredibly hard to put the right feed in front of all of our cattle 365 days a year. We produce almost all of our forages (we buy some dry hay for the show herd) as well as make a sizeable portion of our grain. We do all of this in-house on rented and owned ground.


While it is no secret that the basis of top cow performance is great forages, making the rubber hit the road is vital. My brother Paul coordinates a small army of people, machinery and other variables to consistently put up big quantities of 180 to 210 RFQ haylage and good digestible silage.
