Boon Farms

Boon Farms Boon Farms is a family owned dairy in central Wisconsin that was established in 1975 by Duane Boon. Before he even graduated from school, Duane started his farm with the purchase of 14 heifer calves.

In the 1980β€²s, the Boon farm became Boon Farms with the purchase of two small farmsteads that had retired. Today, Boon Farms has grown to 900 acres, over 250 milking cows and 7 employees. The farm produces over 7 million pounds of raw milk annually. Together we carry out the various daily tasks of the dairy, whether milking, feeding, breeding, building, fixing or hauling. Our top priorities are ensuring excellent animal health and comfort, as well as being great stewards of the land.

Extension Clark County is hosting a Robotic Milking Field Day at Boon Farms in Christie Friday, March 25. From 10:30- 1:30

Boon's are getting a lot of high component milk from the cows, and the cows look great!

Where: Boon Farms N3364 Hwy 73 Greenwood, WI 54437
Guest speaker will be Victor Cabrera from UW-Madison Animal and Dairy Sciences Department who will give a presentation on Data Management in Robotic Milking Systems. His presentation will be at 11:00

Jackie Plank from Seehafer Refrigeration will also be on hand to discuss just about anything robotic milking. She will also talk about data generated from robotic systems. Many robotic dairy producers are utilizing a great amount of data generated by the system to better manage their herds, but most say there is a lot more there to utilize than what they are actually using.

There will be a light snack provided. There is no fee for attending, but registration is required. If interested in attending, please call Clark County Extension at 715-743-5121 by Wednesday March 23.

Brad was raised with his 2 siblings on the farm. He joined into a partnership with his dad in 2014 and in 2020 we took over operations. I love the fact our kiddos get to grow up in the same home has their dad and grandpa! Our facilities may be a bit different but it still remains a family farm. #boonfarms #junedairymonth #heybayl #dairyfarmer

This Spring we welcomed 15 new chicks to our farm.. This little chick (not Baylee lol) has been in isolation and healing from a fight with her coop mates. Chicks can be quite the bullies!
We were worried about her for the last 2 weeks but today she felt well enough to go explore the front yard. She has earned the nickname Cyclops due to her injuries but we are hoping she continues to grow stronger. #boonfarms #heybayl #cyclopsthechick
