Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of the Mississippi River area of western Wisconsin, this 350-cow dairy, pleasantly named as “SunRay Dairy” of Mindoro, WI, is located about 30 miles north of Lacrosse, WI, or about 150 miles southeast of Minneapolis, MN. There is a Germania Double 8 parallel parlor, expandable to a double 12, with stainless steel stalls. There is a clean office area with a separate bathroom with shower, and a separate well-organized milking equipment utility room. The milking cow holding area has open walls for great summer ventilation on the way into the parlor, and is conveniently sloped for easy drainage and for facing the cows toward the parlor. The milk bulk tank has a 2,000-gallon capacity. There are 4 main milking pens (two outer barns) with 67 stalls per pen. The bedding is sand, which is sourced from the farms’ own acreage. There are another 67 stalls in special needs, between 4 pens; and then three “box stall” type pens about 12’ x 24’. Therefore that makes a total of 335 stalls, plus the box stall pens. The youngstock are started in calf hutches, and moved in to super hutches and a line of 8 open front pens with outdoor lots and mangers. In the open feed storage area, there are 2 commodity sheds, 2 hay sheds, and drive-over feed piles. There are two separate manure lagoons, with 2-million total gallon capacity.
