A year ago Big D and I were privelaged to be able to attend the 2009 Montana Young Ag Couples Conference in Helena. It was a great trip where we met lots of new people and learned so much about the Ag Industry. During the week, there were several different workshops and guest speakers. One of those sessions was about Huls Dairy. He talked about the dairy industry in Montana and the U.S.. He talked about their struggles, and what they are doing to stay viable. He talked about the influx of people moving to their area, and not understanding the dairy industry, or agriculture at all, and the difficulties that can arise from that. It was a great session, easily my favorite of the whole week.
A while back I read an article about Huls Dairy. I stated that the dairy were one of 75 winners of the 2010 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. I find that to be an incredible honor. Take a moment to check out Huls Dairy website. Their dairy has been in the family for 5 generations, and they have quite the story to tell.
