The Nagel farm has been at the Highway B and V intersection since 1966, when John and Shirley Nagel came to Langlade County from Central City, Iowa, to run a dairy farm.
They did that with success for decades welcoming their son, Jason into the organization in 1998 after he graduated from the University of Wisconsin in River Falls with an animal science degree.
Other family members joined the operation rounding out the abilities needed to oversee and maintain a complex 2,000-acre plus operation with 1,275 head of livestock.
A tanker of milk is filled at the dairy every 18 hours and heads to Grassland in Greenwood, Wis.
The farm currently has 15 full-time employees and four part-timers.
And all of them are exceptionally busy heading into the breakfast Sunday morning.
