The 🐄 days of Summer ☀️
Chopping Day 2 ✅
It was a busy day of starting our cutting of 3rd crop hay-🐮2957 🐮 had a front row view from the dry cow pen!
🐮 We love teaching people about our farm-we recently got the opportunity to go into a local 2nd grade class and talk about everything that happens! 🚜
They asked great questions, and loved touching and smelling some feed samples 🌽
We are always researching and learning ways to be more efficient and productive!
Check out Troy's interview about how using additional technology has aided in a yield increase with our corn crop 🌽
Thanks for the feature 360 Yield Center!
A celebration tonight for our whole farm crew and their families. Thanks for a great year and we look forward to working together in 2023!!
Sending warm and joyous wishes to everyone this Christmas! Enjoy your day with family 🎄

Summer is always a busy time on the farm, but this summer has been a little busier than normal with meetings to get our new barn project up and going.
We’re excited to be working with Fox Cities Builders on a new barn to give the 🐮 Ladies of Lyndell 🐮 more cow comfort in their transition period!
We can’t wait to share more updates along the way!

Merry Christmas from the Madland’s! 🎄

Finished our last big job of the year yesterday. Now on to equipment repairs in the heated shop.
Earlier this week we classified cows and had an exciting point increase; Lyndell's latest 93 point cow is Blayjoy Atwood Pat-Et!
Thanks Andrew Hetke Photography for picturing her at our district show!
We had a blast hosting campers from Yukon Trails RV & Camping Resort for farm tours this afternoon to celebrate June Dairy month! 🐄
Our visitors learned how we care for our cows, calves and crops growing in the fields. There were lots of sights, sounds and smells to share with everyone, plus a little sample of how our milk becomes the tastiest cheese curds in Wisconsin (thanks CarrValley Cheese)! 🧀
It’s June Dairy Month! 🐄🍦🧀🥛
Since June’s all about Dairy we thought it’d be a great time to introduce ourselves and show you the faces behind Lyndell Dairy!
We’re the Madland Family! Troy & Sandy are first generation farmers and started their dairy farming career in 1991 with 32 head of grade Holsteins. Today, we milk 430 Registered cows and run 1,700 acres of corn, alfalfa, soybeans and some alternative forages; nearly all of the fieldwork is completed by our family.
Many changes have taken place in the last 30 years of farming for Troy & Sandy including expansions, getting involved in Registered Holsteins and welcoming two of their children (Garrett Madland & Theresa Madland) and their families back to the dairy.
We look forward the next 30 years and changes to come as our third generation little farmers lend a helping hand and carry on the family tradition of dairying. 🐮
It’s been a busy afternoon getting rye off the fields!
It’s another beautiful day on the farm!
A sure sign of spring on the farm, seed delivery!
Did you know we sell Byron Seeds?
The first day of Spring brought us our first Red and White Heifer calf since 2017!
We need an "S" name, what's your suggestion?
New year, new technology for us and the Ladies of Lyndell! In January we installed CowManager, after a month of use we are very happy with the data we’re collecting and the early notifications we’re getting on heats and health alerts!
Some shots from Fall 2020.
We’re off and running to get first crop off the ground and in the bunker!
Thanks Cargill for the safety vest, it helps everyone know where our littlest farmer is all the time.
During these crazy times it’s always nice to feel appreciated. Thank you to our secret admirer for sending us this nice note and gift card-we really appreciate it!
Beautiful day to get some corn in the ground! 🌽
