November: Southwind Dairy, Linda Squire, Hagerman, NM

November

Linda Squire, an owner and calf-raiser at Southwind Dairy, takes pride in raising 2,300 replacement heifers for two dairies at their farm in New Mexico. She writes, "No two days have ever been the same here, and we are constantly faced with new challenges. Almost every morning and every evening, we are treated to an amazing and breathtaking reminder of how lucky we are to be on a dairy farm."

December: Orange Patch Dairy, Shannon Seifert, Sleepy Eye, MN

December

Shannon Seifert and her husband, Jonathan, are the backbone of Orange Patch Dairy. The farm, which includes 170 animals, was started by the young couple in 2005. When Shannon isn’t dairy farming, she is a well-known industry spokesperson online with the farm’s blog, YouTube channel, Facebook page and Twitter account. She fondly refers to their herd as members of the family, including Silver Bells, the calf shown in the photo. "Silver Bells is now a bred heifer that will soon give birth to her first calf, adding another member to our extended family. We love them all, every day." About the photo, Seifert adds, "Their bright eyes are enough to make even the worst day, worst winter day, a blessing."

Pride View Dairy, Kelly Boelter, Markesan, WI

Pride View Dairy is a fourth-generation farm started in 1939. With each generation that has operated the farm, the farm has slowly grown in size. Today, 700 head call the farm home. Kelly Boelter, the photographer of this winning entry, writes that the fifth generation of the farm, shown in the photo, is learning fast. Shown are Brianna, Brandon and Brady Boelter.

Miami Hills Dairy, Laura Frye, Logansport, IN

October

Laura Frye is shown in the photo with her brother, Kevin, and father, Perry. Laura fondly remembers helping her grandparents on their dairy farm before they sold their milking herd in 2003.

Laura writes, "I believe that it has taught me important life skills such as dedication, commitment and responsibility."

July Dairy Life Winner of California

Oct 06, 2011

San Isidro Jerseys, Bernadette Estacio, Turlock, CA

San Isidro Jerseys is a family operation that is home to 1,200 Jerseys. The Estacio family loves that dairy farming allows them to work outside every day and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. In reference to her winning photo entry, Bernadette Estacio writes, "Raising our children on the dairy farm is so rewarding. They have learned to raise their own animals, which has taught them responsibility, respect and a work ethic. Every year, our children enter their dairy animals in the county fair, and everyone pitches in to help train the animals, even my 6-year-old son."
