About the Event
Bragger Family Dairy is a partnership of Joe and Noel Bragger, and Joe’s brother, Dan, and his wife, Mary, with assistance from Joe and Dan’s mother, Hildegard.
They utilize manure from the farm’s 300 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle and 64,000 pullets (young chicken hens) on their fields as fertilizer for over 500 acres of corn, soybeans, alfalfa and barley. Another 150 acres of woodlands are managed for wildlife, recreation and timber production.
Everything on the Buffalo County farm is connected and has a purpose: The cows and the chickens, the trout and the trees, the soil and the stream. Joe not only loves the land, but clearly sees what it can do for him and what he can do for it.
