Welcome to Hoerbert Dairy Farm

I'm Farmer Terry Hoerbert, and my husband and I operate a farm in Delavan, Illinois. The farm has been in our family for more than 55 years, but my husband and I are the first generation to have dairy cows. 

One of the newest members of the herd is this calf right here. She doesn't have a name, yet, but if your classroom adopts her, you'll get to name her and watch her grow with monthly photos and updates.

Just like most of the the other dairy cows on our farm, she is a Jersey. No black and white spots here! She's friendly and sweet, as many calves are.

If you'd like to adopt her for your classroom, click the link on the right. Once your adoption form is received, we'll send you an email update with an adoption certificate that you can fill out and hang in your classroom, along with a video from me.

Each month, we'll send an email with a picture and update on your calf, along with fun, educational materials that help students learn about dairy farming and nutritious dairy foods.

Thanks for reading about our dairy farm and baby calf. We hope you'll consider adopting her and follow her during her journey this school year!
