Jacob, Katelyn and Taylor Klipp have grown up feeding, milking and showing Holsteins from their family’s rural Hanover dairy.

,

The Klipp kids are (almost) all grown up since they were featured in a Dairy Month story in the Washington County News in June 2008, right.

,

17-year-old Jacob took a few moments to give the family’s energetic dogs some love on a recent morning.

,

Tim and Jenny Klipp, along with three of their four children, showed off the relatively new sign that welcomes visitors to their dairy. The family is the third generation of Klipps to be living and milking on the farm, which was established in 1883.

,

Calves are tied to huts now at the Klipps’ dairy, but soon the calves will run free in soon-to-be-constructed barn with an automatic milk feeder.

,

Jacob Klipp kept busy pushing up leftover sileage from the morning feeding. Jacob, his brother, Trevor, and his father, Tim, do most of the feeding at the dairy. When the kids aren’t working, they often invite their friends over to the farm where fishing in the pond is a favorite activity.
