NEW CHESTER, Wisc (WSAU) The state will help pay for road improvements to accommodate an expanded dairy farm in Adams County that will equal Wisconsin’s largest. The firm of Milk Source plans to double the size of its dairy herd at the New Chester Dairy in Adams County. It will have 8,400 cows, same as Wisconsin’s largest existing dairy farm – the Rosendale Dairy near Pickett, which is also owned by Milk Source.
Thursday state Agriculture Secretary Ben Brancel and Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb will present a $240,000 grant to the town of New Chester to re-do the road that serves the dairy. The company put up $300,000 last month for the road project.
Milk Source also owns dairies at Omro, Coloma, and Kaukauna – plus a show-cow farm in Freedom, and a calf-raising facility at Greenleaf.
