Best-Sunrise Dairy is located in South Central Missouri at Houston, where "A Passion For Breeding Good Cows" has been a lifelong goal. Best-Sunrise is owned and operated by Richard & Shirley Best along with their son, Michael.

The Best's milk 100 Registered Holsteins with deep pedigrees that have produced the PBR award for 15th years, National show winners, All-Missouri winners, Distinguished Dairy Cattle Breeder Award, and the Gold Star Dairy award. Best's current BAA is 107.0. A highlight of our dairy was Feature story on cover page of Holstein World in 2002.

Best's have developed and bred many Excellent cows and have sold top quality animals in National and State sales. The ongoing ET program focusing on building cow families has helped to fuel their merchandising opportunities. Many cows in the herd produce well over 200,000 lifetime milk. Sons have also been sent to bull studs and cattle and embryos overseas.

Best's insist on feeding the best forage to the herd and raise the majority of the feed themselves. The herd is not feed a TMR or uses any BST. Cows are turned out onto grass as often as possible. Best's also have another passion for breeding Registered Border Collies. At Best Sunrise Dairy they've continually put more and more emphasis on breeding from good cow families.

We look forward to seeing you on the
Heart of the Ozarks Pre-Convention Tour -
Wednesday, June 27!
