La Belle Dairy (La Belle, Missouri) relies on a fleet of skid steer loaders for a variety of tasks around the farm — from cleaning out bedding and pushing feed, to construction projects and site improvement. These machines are the ultimate utility player on the farm — capable of handling and quickly switching between numerous attachments.
“We have two SR210s, and four SV175s. And each one of those is designated for a different part of our dairy applications,” says Luman Wilkerson, operations manager, La Belle Dairy. “One 210 we use to clean out the mangers in the morning, to clean out the feed that the cows don’t eat. Then we have the other one fill in or do a lot of cleanup, or move palettes and materials around. And then the [SV175s] we use for bedding and cleaning the walkways for the cows.”
