Background on the Farm: The Malones milk 250 cows on a rotational grazing program, which consists of three groups: 1st lactation, high group, and a low group. The rotational grazing paddocks are made up of grasses and clover. The cows are also fed a TMR. The Malone’s have been Organic milk and crop producers for 10 years. Justin didn’t always have registered Holsteins. He took advantage of an opportunity to buy some embryos that were registered. Justin and his sons have been picking out good blood lines to grow their registered herd. In years to come it will be exciting to see the genetics from this herd. To learn more about the Malone’s you can read the new member spotlight about them in the December 2017 Minnesota Holstein News.
