Budjon Farms has been an integral part of the Wisconsin Dairy landscape for years. John & Mary (since deceased) made the move to Lomira in the winter of 1998. Their son Tom, married Kelli (Tuman) in 2000, the same year he came home to the farm, and in 2003, Kelli came home to the farm full time, and she and Tom entered into a 50/50 partnership with John & Mary for the both the facilities and the cattle.
While the farm has always been home to a small tie stall Holstein & Jersey milking herd (65 total), its the Budjon Boarding business that has truly flourished over the course of a decade.
In July of 2014, the Culls completed an overall farm face lift, with the addition of a new office building, maternity pens, milkhouse & hospitality/employee areas. Then in the summer of 2015, we completed a much needed update to our calf area, adding another 60 individual hutches & 25 more super hutches for a total of 145 individual hutches and 51 super hutches.
We saw a need for additional youngstock housing with the progression of AI Companies getting into the genomic business and creating their own line up of females, therefore we formed a great working relationship with Alta Genetics and their Peak Program housing their elite individuals both male and female at all ages.
Finally, we designed our own bi-annual sales series called the “Define Your Destiny” Sale. This event encompasses not only the sale of high profile females of all ages from heart of the Budjon & Partners breeding & show program, but also involves Alta Genetics Peak female individuals and outside consignments as well.
We welcome previously announced tours to the farm all year long!
