2018 Central Area Member of Distinction
Over the past 100 years, the Styer family has met its fair share of challenges. A fire in 1981 destroyed their barn, and rebuilding was a struggle in a time of high interest rates. But, brothers Dave, Randy and Dale persisted, and went on to expand in 2014 by installing a 60-stall rotary parlor, which milks their 2,000-cow herd. The Styers have worked hard to ensure their operation is around for generations to come by embracing sustainable practices such as recycling water and reclaiming 98 percent of the sand they use as bedding.
