What’s the power of MAX™?
Dairy farmers make critical decisions every day related to their farm’s profitability, animal health, nutrition, and more. To help make these critical decisions, Cargill consultants use our upgraded and powerful software solution – dairy MAX™.
“I never felt the need to shop around,” says dairyman Glen Miller about his decades-long working relationship with Cargill Dairy Focus Consultant (DFC) Wayne Nolen. Miller is a fifth-generation operator of Fern Valley Farms, and he manages the 60-head milking herd largely on his own. He has worked with Nolen for more than 20 years, resulting in a close partnership between the pair.
Aaron Hoover’s willingness to try new things, paired with Nolen’s ability to offer effective solutions through Cargill, has created an innovative working relationship between the two. As a Cargill customer, Aaron works with Wayne to navigate a range of animal health and nutrition concerns, improving the production of his herd. “At the end of the day,” Aaron says, “I simply want to see my cows healthy, happy and making plenty of milk.”
I want to know how efficiently my capital is working.
Dairy farming can be a great lifestyle and business when the two go hand-in-hand like they now do at Brigeen Farms in Turner, Maine. The well-known Holstein breeder herd was founded in 1977 and welcomed the 10th generation back home in 2000. That’s when Bill and Betsy Bullard joined her parents, Steve and Mary Briggs, on the farm after 10-year careers with Cargill. Today, the herd includes 500 cows and a herd average near 29,000 pounds of milk.
