The Balmer Family
Jeff and Jesslyn Balmer, Lancaster County, built a new dairy barn with two robotic milkers in the fall of 2011. With four young children, the Balmers decided that robotics could help improve their quality of life. This project also included increasing cow numbers, accomplished through acquiring a local cow herd, and family succession planning.
