Madalyn has been involved with the dairy industry all of her life. She grew up on a Jersey farm and remembers helping her dad with his milk can route – a much different routine than the one her and her husband, Pete, took on as they began their Holstein operation in southeast Minnesota.
Madalyn and Pete own and operate the farm that Pete grew up on, allowing their three children a life on the farm. Madalyn says the kids enjoyed helping with the cattle and the crops but that exhibiting cattle in 4-H at the local county fair was always a highlight of the year. Now that the kids have grown, Madalyn and Pete have scaled back to raising Holstein steers.
Throughout the years, Madalyn also served as an administrative assistant for a few area companies. This great mix of computer skills and hands-on agricultural experience makes Madalyn an excellent member of the Udder Tech team. Today, she can be seen processing orders behind the computer or assisting producers as they select the proper product.
My favorite Udder Tech product is… Waterproof Bibbed Overalls
“When the kids were showing our cattle, it was definitely a family project. We had a great time together! I only wish we would have known about the waterproof gear from Udder Tech. Throwing on a pair of Waterproof Bibbed Overalls certainly would have saved on laundry and kept us all clean and dry.”
