Wreden Ranch; Over the years, the gap between agriculture and the public has increased, where many of the rising generation know nothing of where their food comes from. Many think that cows are still hand-milked. Well EJ DeJong never wants his posterity to drift so far from the agricultural world that they don’t even know where their food comes from, or miss out on the satisfaction that comes from a hard day’s work on the farm. That is one reason why he continues on his Dutch family tradition in the dairy industry.
Read this article to learn how DeJong preserves the family dairy tradition and invests in some exciting new technologies to further the efficiency of the dairy and increase cow comfort. Learn about it all in the August issue of California Dairy Magazine, and watch DeJong’s brief video interview on the California AgNet YouTube Channel linked to this website.
