YC Summer Break: Make Tracks to Altoona 

Nearly 85 YCs from five states braved the mid-June heat to attend the 2018 YC Summer Break. The group visited the best of Morrison’s Cove’s dairy industry in Blair County, Pennsylvania. From a tie-stall barn to a 1,500 cow dairy, YCs enjoyed learning and networking with fellow Maryland & Virginia producers. Tours stops include:

  • Alson Zimmerman’s farm- a 65 cow tie-stall farm in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania.
  • Kevin and Tonya Brubaker’s farm- a 420 cow dairy with a newer automated calf feeder in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania.
  • Mill Hill Farm – owned by the Biddle family in Williamsburg, Pennsylvania with a new freestall barn and dry cow facility for their 350 milking herd.
  • Kulp Family Dairy – 1,500 cow dairy in Morrison’s Cove.
  • Maple Kroft Farm- a 200 cow dairy owned by Brian and Rachel Detwiler, the 2018 Outstanding YCs.
