What DCHA members are saying

"After being a member and serving on the DCHA board for the last 10 years, I can truly say having been part of this organization has been the best investment in time and money I have ever spent for my business. I have met lifelong friends who, even though we might bid against each other for a dairy's heifer business, are all better at our jobs because of DCHA."

Vance Kells
Circle Bar Heifer Ranch | Satanta, KS

"We were still learning the calf business even though I had an animal agricultural background and bovine experience as a veterinarian. When you get into specialized work, like raising calves and heifers, it's good to rub shoulders and share information with people who are doing the same thing. DCHA allows me to do that."

John Hartsough
Creekside Farms, Inc. | Manchester, IN

"I am a DCHA member because I am a dairy producer and custom grower. The organization is a tool to my operation, education and networking. The networking is probably the best!"

Katharine Edler
Godfrey Farms LLC & CamCalKarDairy | Browntown, Wis.

"DCHA provides an atmosphere to meet, network, exchange ideas, learn from each other and realize that no two operations are the same so there's always something you can learn from someone else or that they can learn from you."
