FEATURED FARMER

Rick and Sarah Ahlgren: Since 2018, Rick and Sarah Ahlgren have owned and managed their 3rd generation family farm. They have six children ranging in age from 4 to 12 and all help on the farm.

As business owners, Rick and Sarah started to investigate various options to continue to improve their farm. In early 2020, the Ahlgrens decided to invest in technology by building a new barn with the latest robotic milking equipment. A robot even mixes and delivers feed to the milking cows while another robot cleans the barn floor.
