Slideshow: Hendriks Dairies Ltd.

Published on 11 June 2018

After combining his herd with half of his father’s herd, Tyler Hendriks outgrew the tiestall facility and built a new freestall barn.

It features tunnel ventilation, sand bedding and alley scrapers. Hendriks installed a double-8 parallel parlour, equipped with GEA-IQ milkers with automated take offs. The new facility was opened in March 2017.

A former pig barn on the property was converted to quarters for calves and heifers. See the operation in the slideshow below. Photos by Lora Bender and Mike Dixon.
