EskDale Dairy is a dairy owned by the Christian community of EskDale.
It is located in the western Utah desert just inside the Nevada
border on highway 6&50. We have milked cows here since 1973
and have had purebred Holsteins since 1976.
After a complete dispersal in 1986, the largest ever in Utah,
we have been slowly rebuilding the herd. Presently, there are 240
cows being milked on the farm with 180 being registered. Total animals
on the farm approach 500 including heifers, bulls, dry cows and
donors. Embryo transfer is being utilized extensively with bulls
placed in AI and embryo choices being sold at public auction. Lately,
we have been purchasing animals from great cow families and flushing
On the farm we currently have members of the great Dellia cow family
from Regancrest, the Elsie family from Kestells, the Martha cow
at Ricecrest, and other prepotent cow families. Our herd has been
honored with PBR recognition the last two years. The RHA is over
24000 on 2x milking and the BAA is consistently over 105%. Our 2008
classification had great results. We had 14 new VG cows with 7 of
those being two year olds, and we had 3 new Ex! An EX 90 Jolt was
raised to EX 92.
