"Cleans out right down to almost nothing"

Rich Olson of Olson, LLC
Sturgeon Bay, WI
Rich and Eric Olson are the fifth generation to own their family’s dairy farm since it was established 140 years ago in Sturgeon Bay, WI. The brothers milk 100 cows and raise about 100 youngstock on the farm, appropriately named Olson, LLC.

To feed their herd, Rich and Eric require a mixer that delivers reliable performance and excellent mix quality, regardless of batch size. In October of 2011, they purchased a 420 cu. ft. Patz 1200 Series Stationary Single Screw Vertical Mixer from their local Patz Mixer Dealer, Spartan Construction, Inc. of Luxemburg, WI. The mixer has been meeting the Olsons’ feeding requirements ever since.

Rich and Eric feed three batches a day, including a small 200-pound batch, which they report their Patz 1200 Series processes with ease. They run their mixer with a 30-horsepower motor and a variable frequency drive (VFD) with operator station, which offers low, medium, high, and high boost mixing speeds with the ability to reverse.

Rich said, “We really like the variable frequency drive because it enables us to have a better cleanout at the end.  We can clean the mixer out right down to almost nothing. We’re really happy with how it’s performing for us.”

Their Patz 1200 Series Stationary Single Screw Vertical Mixer is not the only Proven Performer on Olson, LLC. Rich and Eric also have two Patz Model 8916 Belt Feeders, a Model 4444 Vertical Pit Pump, and a Model 400 Gutter Cleaner to help meet the dairy’s material handling needs. 


The Olsons were also featured in the November 2012 issue of the Patz LINK Newsletter!
