Dairy Farm Case Studies

The Bollinger Family

Business Planning; Employee Management; Renewable Energy

Andy and Andrea Bollinger, Lancaster County, focused their transformation work in four key areas – conservation improvements, human resource management, new Double-12 parallel milking parlor, and succession planning.  PENNVEST money helped fund the conservation work, including covering walkways and constructing a shed for compost.  A local veterinarian and transformation team member facilitated employee interviews, sharing feedback with the Bollingers.  They have since implemented changes in their employee management system.
