Dedication to Dairy

Pam and Dave Bolin are pictured here on their family farm in rural Clarksville.

This fall at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wis., Swiss Valley Farms Board Chair Pam Bolin will be honored as “Dairy Woman of the Year” at the annual Dinner with the Stars Recognition Banquet.

She’s only the second woman in Iowa to win this honor.

The journey that eventually led Pam to this award began in Clarksville, where she and her husband, Dave, have owned and operated Beaver Creek Dairy for the past 35 years.

This is where they raised their three sons: Matthew, 33, Daniel, 31, and James, 27. Dan and his wife, Lynn, currently work in partnership with Pam and Dave on Beaver Creek Dairy, where their kids, Amara and Vance, bring a lot of joy to their grandparents.
