Meet Michigan Dairy Farmer Kristi Keilen
As a fourth-generation dairy farm family, we truly love what we do. Every day, I work with my family to care for our 450 milking cows. In addition to caring for our cows, we spend a lot of time caring for our land where we grow the food that feeds our animals. We farm around 1,900 acres of corn, soybeans, alfalfa, wheat and sorghum. Most of the crops grown on our land are fed to our cows, providing the nutrition they need to produce high-quality milk.
I love farming because I love being able to provide food that feeds the world. I also love that I get to share my passion with my family every day by caring for our animals and being good stewards of our land. I look forward to the day we can pass this wonderful opportunity on to the next generation, just like it was passed on to me.
