Meet the Talsmas of Talsma Dairy in Texas.
The Talsmas are very hands on with every aspect of their operation. It’s not easy. In fact, parents Hendrik and Jantsje initially told their kids not to choose careers in the industry. But you can’t keep someone away from their calling. All five of their children have stayed in agriculture, and Jouwert and Syke both came back to the dairy.
Syke takes care of the calves. And when she’s not putting them in silly hats for holiday photo shoots, she’s working with her brothers to build contraptions that save their lives.
