Better Mix Leads to Increased Production!

Tim and Wendy Sohrweide own Shady Lane Dairy in Chilton, Wisconsin. Tim, the fourth generation of Sohrweides to operate the dairy, currently milks 185 cows.

Tim Sohrweide had been using a drag chain feed mixer before he decided it was time for a change. Knowing that a well-balanced diet ensures good milk production, and thus a profitable operation, Tim consulted with his local Patz Dealer to decide on a Patz 800 Series Stationary Vertical Mixer.

Since purchasing the 350 cubic foot stationary mixer, the Sohrweides have seen improvements in the health of their herd and a definite boost milk production. “Production has increased 3 to 4 pounds per cow due to the better mix,” stated Tim, “The Patz mixer does a great job.”
