Dansal dairy was established 29 years ago by Dan and Sally Burd primarily with Milking Shorthorns. The breed has been in Sally’s family for 70 years with part of the cattle tracing back to the original cattle purchased from Rye Brothers. Through the years the family (Sarah, Kerry, Ross, Susan and John) have been blessed with many show and production winners and besides all the hard work, a source of entertainment for the family.

Many good friends have been established also from working with the cattle. With most of the children gone and no one wanting to take over the reins of the dairy we have decided with heavy hearts to sell the dairy portion of our cattle. We hope the buyers will be as blessed as we have with them and love and respect the red, white and roan (and the Jersey) as much as we have.

Some of the highlights of our years in the dairy business have been:

  • Having the top milk indexing genetic expansion cow of the breed
    (the granddam of Zena)
  • Daughter Susan winning junior, senior and grand champion honors at NAILE with all homebred DanSal cattle!
  • Had furtuity winner at World Dairy Expo with Mappleton Vly Zeta.
  • Dan Burd honored with the Distinguished Dairy Cattle Breeder for the Missouri Dairy Hall of Honors. named a breeder award winner in the dairy hall of honors.
  • One of our home Red Bull’s, DanSal Lineman, made the top 10 in the bull list.
  • DanSal has bred over 20 excellent cows to date and we believe there are more to come!
  • DanSal has won numerous premier breeder and exhibitor banners at the Missouri State Fair and Ozark Empire Fair
  • DanSal animals have been led to championships in 7 states!
