Echowood Holsteins - Dennis & Cindy Begert

Our Farm...

The farm consists of 272 acres located about 10 miles Northwest of Neillsville, Wisconsin.  The 84 cows are milked twice a day in a conventional tie stall barn.  All of the forages and much of the dry corn is grown on the farm.  A Virginia Polytech type heifer facility (featured below), which houses approximately 70 head, was constructed in the spring of 1999.  The "double-gate" system allows the facility to be very labor friendly.

Most of the labor force consists of Denny and Cindy, along with two employees. Brian helps out by doing I.V.'s on sick cows and with field work when he can. Brian also owns several cows in the herd.   Quite a few are his own homebred animals, but in the past few years he has purchased several head from Dupasquier Holsteins Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  One of his purchases, Dupasquier Starbuck Sylvia, (also below) was a daughter of Boalcrest Sterling Silver, who was Supreme Champion at World Dairy Expo in 1997.  Sylvia's record: 7-1 365 44218 3.7 1618 3.1 1387. Although no longer in the herd, Silvia has left us with many productive offspring.
