Bosdale Farms is a family farm operated by the Bos family, including four brothers, their families and one full-time employee. The Bosdale prefix was started in 1972. They currently milk 160 cows and have a hog operation of 350 sows, farrow to finish. They work 1200 acres, of which 950 are owned.
The Holstein Herd consists of 55 EX, 130 VG and 25 GP animals. They have been Premier Exhibitor and Premier Breeder at Perth-Waterloo Holstein Show eleven times. They also exhibited the winning Breeder’s Herd ten times during this period, and have had the winning Junior herd five times. They are thankful for the success that breeders around the globe have had when investing in our herd’s genetics. These investments include, Ridgefield Dundee Portea, 2x ALL-WORLD nominee; and other show winners like Spirit Pricilla in Holland and Goldwyn Lustre in Germany, that were sold as embryos from our herd.
