Search HALCat, Harold Andersen Library’s catalog, to find titles such as Creating Dairyland: How caring for cows saved our soil, created our landscape, brought prosperity to our state, and still shapes our way of life in Wisconsin (1st-floor Special Collections — non-circulating –SF232.W6 J3 2011). Even though Andersen Library’s copy is non-circulating, you can visit Special Collections to see it, or UWW students and faculty/staff may borrow it from other UW campuses by using the free Universal Borrowing service! Searching the Library’s article databases would find articles such as “Partnership for the future” (Successful Farming, vol.107:no.4, pp.52-56), which discusses “the multi-generational family business of the McNeelys and the Schultzes they named Rollin’ Green Dairy Farm in Brooklyn, Wisconsin. As the first generation of the two families phase out of the business, it became an opportunity for the sons to take over the business.” This article is available in the Library’s 1st-floor Bound Periodicals collection.
