Vander Dussen Family
Meet the Vander Dussens of Rajen Dairy in New Mexico.
They say that how we react in a crisis shows more about our character than any conversation ever could. When that crisis is a once-in-a-century blizzard? That’s when you really learn what you’re made of and who you can rely on.
The Vander Dussens lived through such a crisis – 2015’s Goliath snow and ice storm – and came out the other side stronger. Their first priority was taking care of their cows, a mission that required 24/7, all-hands-on-deck attention. In the face of 12-foot snow drifts, 50 mph winds and sub-zero temperatures, the Rajen Dairy family stepped up to the challenge.
