Family Keeps Dairy Farm Alive

Posted: Updated:

For one dairy farm in North Dakota, it's all about keeping the family business alive from generation to generation.

Since 1902, the Hoger family has owned and operated Hogerville Dairy Farm in New Salem, North Dakota. Every morning, seven days a week, the entire family gets up early to milk their 250 cows, learning the value of hard work. And, for more than 35 years, they've been bringing their cattle to the North Dakota State Fair every summer to compete in the three dairy shows.

"[We] look forward to not only competing just seeing how your animals do compared to everybody else's animals, but it ends up being a family affair here.  Everybody knows everybody and you get to see them every year, so that's the fun part of it," said Hogerville Dairy Farm owner Kim Hoger-Ledger.

All of the milk the Hoger family produces is sent to Dean Foods where it is bottled and sent to grocery stores.
