2021 Michael and Jessica Lovich-Balgonie,SK
Michael and Jessica Lovich are passionate dairy farmers from Balgonie, SK. They own and operate Lovholm Holsteins, a 70- cow dairy that focuses on animal longevity, cow health and production as well as farm sustainability and growth.
Born and raised on purebred dairy farms in Alberta, it is where Michael and Jessica both got their love of the industry. They both have travelled many miles on the Holstein show circuit and their love of cows has given them many other travel opportunities as well. Michael has a diploma in Livestock Production while Jessica holds a diploma in Animal Health; both from Lakeland College.
The focus of their business right now is for Lovholm Holsteins to continually breed conformationally superior animals and increase production traits with each cow. They are also always looking at ways they can diversify the farm or educate others on agriculture. They own 160 acres and rent an additional 400 acres to produce their own feed. Michael and Jessica strive to be self sufficient but build a strong team around them at the same time. They love learning and considering new ideas for the farm to meet its goals.
Living so close to Regina and many smaller communities provides many opportunities for the farm to host a tour or Jessica to go into schools to speak about agriculture. Engaging with consumers and educating people is a priority at Lovholm. The couples’ passion for agriculture is something they hope to also pass on to their three daughters. It is a family affair running the farm and everyone has a part. All the family members are also active in their community sports programs, church, and school.
