The last remaining dairy farm in the Town of LaFayette is stopping milk production.
Owner Bud Nurse told NewsChannel 9 due to his health and the dairy economy, he has decided to auction off all of his equipment and cattle.
“It is mixed emotions. I mean part of me is excited to start another chapter in your life and you know?” Nurse said. “Hopefully everything will go good.”
The auction is set to take place at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the Ameslea Farm in Lafayette.
Nurse says when he moved to LaFayette to farm back in 1989, there were eight dairy farms. Now there won’t be any that produce milk in the town.
“Last four years has been pretty tough,” he said when asked about selling milk.
Farmers from across the state are expected to attend Tuesday’s auction.
