Golden Oaks Farm


Golden Oaks Farm was established in 1948 by the Crown Family of Chicago. The farm is located in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, about 45 minutes from O'Hare Airport and two hours from Madison, Wis. The focus at Golden Oaks Farm is to breed and develop superior Black and White and Red and White Holstein genetics. They accomplish this through careful selection of the top genetics in their herd, which is then supplemented with top-notch genetics from around the world. Golden Oaks utilize an extensive embryo transfer program to help accomplish these goals, which is performed by Sunshine Genetics of Whitewater, Wis. The result is numerous high-value genetic females, bulls, and embryos sold worldwide each year.
