Solutions for Dairy Farmers around the Globe
Ever-Green-View Farms LLC is an award-winning dairy farm in Waldo, Wisconsin, family-owned and -operated for over 40 years. In addition to milk production, the company has earned an international reputation not only for exporting top-quality Holstein genetics and live cattle, but also as a source of information for dairy farmers around the globe to make them more successful.
Growth through Export Success
Ever-Green-View Farms ventured into exporting as a way to reach a bigger customer base within its niche market and dilute risk by selling into multiple markets. Today, two-thirds of the company’s revenues come from exporting. The company found particular success on a trade venture to China in 2015 with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Connections made on the trade trip resulted in a couple of hundred thousand dollars’ worth of embryo sales, according to co-owner Tom Kestell. In 2016, the company received the Governor’s Export Achievement Awards for its export success.
