  • Shanes pipeline their future

    LYN – Evenything is up and running smoothly at Donnaville Holsteins on County Road 27 just north of the this Leeds village as Richard and Susanne Shane moved their herd into their new barn May 26 after an open house at their new full service tie-stall facility Sat., May 24.

    Richard built the barn himself – with a lot of help from friends and neighbours – but the facility's central nervous system is its Westfalia-Surge pipeline, installed by McCann's of Seeleys Bay, and its Milkmaster a take-offs were supplied by Plante Farm Equipment of Brintson.

    McCann also supplied the tie-stalls stanchions and Donnaville's 1250-gal tank.

    The Shanes moved their 46 head from their old barn, across the lane from the new building, which is set up for 64 head, a number they hope to reach by the end of 2003.

    The Shanes are a fixture in the Lyn area, Richard farming here all his life and taking over from his father, George, who died in 1995.

    They crop 480 acres in hay, grain, beans and corn, supplying their own on-farm needs doing some cash cropping on the side.

    Their liquid manure management system employs the same pit that serviced the old barn.
