Ag Entrepreneur: Gradual growth gives a foothold

Growing the dairy in planned, affordable steps is creating a way for Andy Hendrickson, 31, and his brother, Dan, 28, to farm near Cambria, Wisconsin.

With their parents, Neal and Pam, the Hendrickson brothers milk 150 cows and grow 800 acres of crops.

Andy showed an enterprising bent for dairying as a high school sophomore. A neighbor’s call for help helped create Andy’s Milking Service.
