Minnesota Milk Producers Association named Hinckley Holsteins, a family owned and operated farm in Chatfield, Minn., as its Minnesota 2014 Producer of the Year during the Minnesota Milk Dairy Conference and Expo in St. Cloud.
Dale and Marlys Hinckley and their sons, Matt and Adam, were selected for their commitment and dedication to the dairy industry, managing their farm for future generations and being active in their local community.
For today's afternoon ag segment, we catch up with Dale Hinckley and discuss how Hinckley Holsteins came to be such a prominent business in the industry, and a fine example of how hard dairy producers work to provide us with wholesome, safe dairy products.
"Hinckley Holsteins serves as a shining example to others in the dairy industry," said Bob Lefebvre, Minnesota Milk Producers Association executive director. "The Hinckleys' advocacy of the dairy industry has been terrific, and it's great to see the tradition of farming being carried on from generation to generation."
