Starting calves on the right hoof

When Mark Osterkamp moved from Southern California to West Texas to bring Osterkamp Dairy to life in 2003, he knew he wanted to continue his family’s legacy. Mark is a fourth-generation dairy farmer after his great grandfather began dairying in the 1920s. Today, Osterkamp Dairy is home to an efficient, productive Holstein herd all because Mark got the “bug” to follow in his family’s footsteps.

His heart is in his cows and community

Steve Entwistle, winner of the East White Heart Award, has always been thought of by his community as a “giver.” He is the type of person that whenever someone passes away, he is one of the first to bring a meat platter and rolls to the family—If it is a farm family, he makes sure that they have enough help on the farm and if financially they are okay.

Do a winter safety audit

Not only does winter bring on less than ideal working temperatures it can also cause a spike in work-related accidents. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2017, there were 20,460 injuries related to ice, sleet, and snow. These were just the incidents reported, which do not include those that might be labelled as “minor.” Although some might be thought of as such, they still disrupt the routine of not having these work-related accidents.
