“It Does A Great Job Processing All Of My Ingredients”


Chad Denowski, Golden Ridge Dairy.

David and Sheila Denowski own and operate Golden Ridge Dairy with their children, Chad and Tracy. The Beaver, Wisconsin  dairy is home to 450 milking cows and 350 heifers.

Chad saw many benefits after switching to a 615 cubic foot 1200 Series Trailer Single Screw Vertical Mixer to feed the family’s herd. He reports that this new mixer is also providing significant savings for his operation.


Pizza crusts are loaded into the mixer and processed with ease.

One of the benefits of feeding with a Patz Vertical Mixer is the flexibility to use a wide variety of feed ingredients and less expensive alternatives. “It does a great job processing all of my ingredients, including round bales and alternative energy sources – pizza crusts, dried whey, and beet pulp,” Chad stated.

Regardless if the machine is mixing a 2,000 pound batch for his steam-up group or a large 17,000 pound batch, Chad knows his herd will be getting a thorough, consistent TMR. He said, “The new [Vortex®] Screw mixes fast and is very consistent. The ration is very well mixed in a shorter period of time.” The Denowski’s also opted for the dual kicker on the screw. Chad states, “The extra kickout on the screw provides a more consistent, level pile in the free stall when discharging.”

After experiencing the benefits of a Patz 1200 Series Vertical Mixer, Golden Ridge Dairy is pleased to continue their sixty-year long tradition of success with Patz equipment.
