Meet the Winners of the Dairy Life Photo Contest

Oct 04, 2011

The entries came from across the country and the selections have been made. We’ve captured exactly what family dairy farming is all about in the 2012 Dairy Life Calendar from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. This is a calendar your milkhouse or office wall won’t want to be without! To claim your copy of the 2012 Dairy Life Calendar, visit the Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. booth (#2806) at World Dairy Expo or visit to have one sent to your farm.

We’ll be introducing you to the winners throughout World Dairy Expo. Here’s more about our winner from January.

January: Western Waves LLC, Hilda Mitchell, DVM, Ferndale, Wash.


The photo was taken at the Mitchells’ family farm, Western Waves LLC. Seven hundred fifty Holsteins, Jerseys and crossbreds call the western Washington farm home. One of Hilda Mitchell’s favorite parts of living on a dairy farm is the natural beauty and cow-friendly environment she is surrounded by daily. She enjoys watching calves from her kitchen window. Their excitement at seeing the milk bucket come each morning never ceases to bring a smile to Mitchell’s face.

"Part of the idea behind starting a dairy in one of the more populated areas of Washington was to foster relationships between the dairy and the public, thus connecting the consumer with the cattle-human bond that generations of farm families have enjoyed," she writes. "To me, this photograph captures the essence of that relationship."

The contest and calendar are brought to you by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. — the name behind a trusted line of products for dairy producers, including ToDAY® and ToMORROW® tubes; Pyramid®, Express® FP and Triangle® vaccines; and others such as Bovikalc®, Cydectin® and Polyflex®.
