Testimonials
“We have worked with Dr. Barber and her colleagues for over 5 years. They have worked with our clients in both diagnosing problems and setting up a program for optimal calf health. Their combination of cutting-edge animal health knowledge with boots-on-the-ground common sense works for us in our operation and our customers across the Midwest. I recommend every cow-calf under-roof customer has a veterinarian who believes in cow-calf under-roof and can make a proactive plan before the first cow enters the building. Dr. Barber and her team are our first call every time we have a question or concern.” Brent Bryant Managing Director Hoop Beef System, LLC
“MoDak Dairy, Inc. has been working with Dr. Sara Barber and Dan Bakker for several years. They have been able to facilitate changes to challenges we were trying to improve on for 5 years. They work with everyone on the farm, from our milking team, to scrapers, to the other consultants. They have changed and improved numerous items on our dairy including reducing the somatic cell count by 60% and improving cow and calf health. They continue to monitor and improve our daily tasks and overall dairy functions.” Greg Moes, Owner, MoDak Dairy, Inc., Goodwin, SD
“Foundation Livestock Service has brought a lot of knowledge, persistency, and practicality to my calf raising program. They started from square one and methodically went through my calf program from maternity pen sanitation to bacteria count of the colostrum. On a regular basis, they check the sanitation of the colostrum and calf equipment. I would never make the time to follow through on this important step. They treated my situation, looked at what was available, and took steps to make my situation the best it could be.” Terry Van Maanen, Owner of Winding Meadows Dairy, Rock Valley, IA
“Having worked with Foundation Livestock Service for almost two years, they have improved our dairy’s performance. The team meetings and “homework” discipline and focus our team on the management of ourselves and those we manage. As owner of the dairy, I realize that time spent building teams and setting goals for my managers is efficient and essential to our success and development. The concept of Lean Management is something that inspires me to evaluate costs and trim under used, unnecessary expenses. Modern large dairies are an extremely busy place and workload can dictate, leaving little time to manage our teams. Foundation Livestock Service have shown me the value of taking time to build a culture of team management and shift responsibility to others, allowing us to become a better dairy with time to focus on family life and further expansion.” Rodney Elliott, Drumgoon Dairy, Lake Norden, SD
