Dairy cows have inhabited Norz-Hill Farm & Market, LLC since 1920, and we have had Registered Holstein for over 45 years. We have milked as many as 300 cows and have had as many as 700 total animals in the herd at one time.
In April of 2009, we decided to stop our milking operation and cut our herd back to about 200 animals. Today we still have about 60 registered Holsteins heifers on our farm, many are family members that have been with us for generations and we have also added a few select new members to our herd.
If you are interested in a heifer from one of our top families or a fancy spring heifer to add to your milking string, give us a call.
Below you can find some of the cow families we are currently working with. Enjoy!
