Meet Amanda Carey Goodfellow, a farmer who works alongside her dad and grandfather on about 1,000 acres and who milks 180 cows using robot milking machines. She takes a break in the field with us and talks about:

  • An in-depth visual description of her robots that milk cows
  • Remodeling a home and barn and getting married all in a year
  • How she blows of steam when the day’s work is stressful
  • What a fun day on the farm looks like for three peas in a pod
  • The age she knew she didn’t want to be a lawyer
  • The No. 1 thing she worried about looking good on her wedding day
  • A realistic viewpoint of what success means to her
  • How she convinced her dad that she was dedicated to farming
  • Being involved in Farm Bureau, Michigan Milk Producers Association and local 4-H
  • Some similarities and differences between her farm and one she interned with
