It's almost summer

Summer hours began at our stores May 1. Moo Roo is open until 10 p.m. every day now. The Outlet remains open until 9 p.m.

Remember Hansen's for all your graduation and summer grilling needs. We have lean ground beef patties and other chicken, pork and beef cuts. Don't forget the cheese!

If you're looking for a fun summer activity, come on down to the farm! Pick up a brochure at our stores or visit our web site (link can be found at left). Prices are $10/person for a hands-on tour (milk a cow, feed a calf, make butter and have ice cream) or $6/person for a walk-through visit. Make a reservation by calling (319) 939-2187.

Hansen's also encourages you to support our local farmers' markets. They are now open! Stop in our stores to find a listing of all the markets in the area.

Manager change

Thank you to Andy Sheets, our longtime manager at Moo Roo. He has left for a new job in New Mexico. We have appreciated having him on board. Best of luck to him!

Sheila Wetherell is now back to manage our store. She was our original manager when Moo Roo opened for business and stayed until she was diagnosed with cancer. Sheila has fought the disease and now is back to work. Welcome back!

Cow of the Month

Danish is May's Cow of the Month. She is 5 1/2 years old and is quite a hard worker. She has given us 95,083 pounds of milk - 11,081 gallons - in her 3 1/2 years of production. She holds the herd record for most gallons produced in one day at 16!

Danish is a wonderful cow to work with. She is on the "Locater List," which means she is ranked among the top 5,000 cows in the U.S. based on her milk production and type (what she looks like). Right now she is producing 120 pounds/day and is just getting started in this lactation. She will produce around 140 pounds a day soon!
