Steele County American Dairy Association Hosts Breakfast on the Farm
The Steele County American Dairy Association will host their June Dairy Month Breakfast on the Farm this Saturday, June 25. This year's host farm family is the Ben Rysavy family.
Ben's grandfather purchased a 120-acre farm in 1941. The Rysavys now farm 900 acres in corn, beans, alfalfa and small grains. They milk 170 head and have an additional 170 beef head.
Free bus transportation will begin at 8AM from the Steele County Fairgrounds with the last bus departure at 11:30AM.
The cost is $5 per person and the menu will feature pancakes, sausage, cheese, milk and coffee.
Other attractions at the farm will include horse and buggy rides, a petting zoo, youth activity tent, kiddie train ride, antique tractors and milk truck on display, jump house and a chance to get your picture taken with a calf. There will also be barn tours.
The Steele County Dairy Princesses and Dairy Ambassadors also will be there.
There will be handicap parking only at the farm. However, keep in mind that Highway 45 is closed due to construction so, if possible, taking the shuttle bus is advised.
