Each month Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative features a member from our lines. The power of community comes from people who live, work, and play here in our towns and we want to share the many stories that come from the 2,300 members that we serve.
June is National Dairy Month and, HCREC would like to showcase Campbell Dairy for our June membership spotlight. Campbell Dairy is a four generation dairy farm located in Neola, Iowa. Bruce Campbell and his two sons, Seth and Kyle work tirelessly to ensure that the dairy operation is running efficiently. For their herd, they have built a 24 hour barn system that contains open stalls where the cows can happily eat, nap, socialize, and go to the robot for milking. The barns are all temperature controlled with an extensive system for keeping the cows cool and avoid heat stress. Not only do the Campbells produce dairy products, they also work to produce what is needed to feed and maintain their herd as well as provide upkeep and mechanical maintenance on all of the robotics systems within their family farm.
When asked about what the best part of being a part of the dairy industry and working on the farm, Seth Campbell noted that he and his family are satisfied in knowing they produce a product that consumers are going to use first hand. Campbell Dairy prides itself on producing a product that is of the best quality for consumers. They actively work to test their milk with extensive measures for quality control.
When asked, what is the family's favorite dairy product?
"Probably have to be ice cream, but the kids eat a lot of yogurt and cottage cheese."
Thank you Campbell Dairy for being a valued member of Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative!
