MENOMONIE, Wis. — Representatives from Vets Plus, Inc. have presented Wisconsin’s Sheila Rogers of Hy Ridge Holsteins, LLC with a check for $500 toward hiring a milking service for her dairy.
The campaign, "Vets Plus will milk your cows!", was held earlier this month at World Dairy Expo with the intent of giving one producer a break from milking for the weekend. More than 260 visitors to the booth registered to win the drawing.
Outfitted in pink UdderTech milking bibs and cow-spotted boots, Vets Plus "milk maidens," employees Tracy Nelson (Calf Specialist), Lori Mirmesdagh (Graphic Designer), and Cherie Grandt (Director of Marketing), greeted visitors to the booth during World Dairy Expo and answered questions about the company’s products and manufacturing capabilities.
"World Dairy Expo is always a great time to interact with our customers and get their feedback on our products," Grandt said. "I was delighted to hear of the many success stories from users of Probios® and our other brands. The drawing just made it more fun. We know how hard our customers work and wanted to be able to give them a break."
Rogers, a Ridgeland, Wis., dairy farmer, was thrilled to receive the prize. Nelson, Grandt, and Mirmesdagh delivered the check to Hy Ridge Holsteins on Oct. 22. Rogers regularly uses Probios® probiotic products manufactured by Vets Plus for her calves. Hy Ridge Holsteins milks 300 cows in a double 12 parlor and also farms 800 acres of cropland. Rogers said she looks forward to attending World Dairy Expo in Madison every year for the wealth of information available and enjoys getting away from the farm for a few days.
