In 1971, a slatted floor, free stall barn was built to handle 200 cows. This barn was built by our father and grandfather and proved to be profitable helping the next generation to continue herd size growth. We certainly thank our parents and grandparents for the many opportunities given.
In 1994 a new dairy facility was built 1 ½ miles north of the original farm. At this facility we are presently milking 2500 cows with a herd average of 37,894 milk, 1,391 fat and 1,136 protein.
We farm 5400 acres enabling us to grow our own haylage, corn silage, wheat and about ½ of our grain corn. We have 50 dedicated and hardworking staff to help us keep our dairy running smoothly and efficiently.
We grew up doing chores, showing cattle and being very involved in youth dairy activities and wanted to give our children many of the same opportunities. Also we wanted to get back into owning, developing and breeding elite cattle. Several years ago this 1970’s freestall barn was completely remodeled to accommodate our elite genetic cattle.
At this genetics farm our children can be found helping with chores on a regular basis and growing in their responsibilities and knowledge.
This new purebred center can care for up to 30 lactating cows and about a dozen dry donors. We work passionately on feeding, developing and marketing these individuals to their every advantage.
We hope you enjoy viewing our cattle and welcome your questions and interest.

At Siemers Holsteins our goal is to make “GENETICS FOR COW PEOPLE.” Whether it’s type or genomic our goal is to produce a balanced product. For us, a balanced product consists of a solid sire stack, solid family production, and solid marketable genomic numbers. We believe that building a balanced cow will create problem free cattle that will pay dairyman dividends for years to come.
