Farmer Profile for Kyle Leibold

Please describe your past and/or present farming experience

Worked on dairy farms out of high school until I was able to buy my own herd. Milked 40 of my own cows for a few years until milk prices plummeted and decided to sell out as to not go into debt. Still milking a herd currently every morning and also working a full time job. Looking for an opportunity to get back into the dairy business.
