This year that event takes place Saturday, June 15 from 7 a.m. to 12 noon, rain or shine, at Strack-View Farms LLC, W6462 Abbott Drive, Random Lake.

The Strack family - Ken, Margie, Ken Jr. and Kyle - are the owners and they have accommodated the Sheboygan County Dairy Promotion Association to welcome the public to come and visit, see where quality dairy products are produced and have some fun, all rolled into one day.

Strack-View Farms LLC is a 360-cow dairy operation located on 880 acres of peaceful farmland. Ken Sr. is the general manager and his wife, Margie, and daughter, Christine, watch over the financial part of the operation. Ken Jr. is the herd manager and oversees day to day duties of the dairy herd and his brother, Kyle, is responsible for the management of the replacement animals such as calves and heifers. Son Dustin, also works on the farm serving as the farm’s mechanic and provides building maintenance. They all help with the field work because the farm produces the majority of the feed for the milking herd.

Strack-View Farms began in 1972 when Ken Sr. began renting the farm. In 1977 he purchased the farm and was milking 45 cows.

Throughout the years Ken’s dad, Wilfred, helped with the field work, all of which is an important area and often requires numerous hands to accomplish the work.

The years to follow have seen growth for Strack- View Farms, LLC. They have made improvements to the operation to improve cow comfort and be labor efficient. As the family grew so did the farm and each of their children developed working skills while helping on the farm.

The Stracks maintain a strong family business by staying up to date with technology and management practices. Ken Jr. and Kyle both recently received a diploma in farm business and production management from Lakeshore Technical College.

The Stracks would like to invite the public to come and visit their dairy operation and take part in all of the fun events that the Sheboygan County Dairy Promotion Association will also have for their enjoyment. There will be a traditional dairy farm breakfast, Badgerland Barnyard Blast Ice Cream, Sartori Cheese tasting, Addie the Cow, Children’s Barnyard Farm Tours, Kiddie train rides, wagon farm tours, a petting zoo, a sand box and a machinery display. The first 300 kids age 10 and under will receive a free t-shirt with a donation of a non-perishable food item.

Tickets are $7 in advance or $8 at the door. Children ages 3-6 years old are $3 and ages 2 and under are free.
