PLEASANT HOPE, MO. – On the Gettle Dairy Farm in Pleasant Hope, Mo., robotic milkers save Ryan and Debbie Gettle precious time with their four children. Since 2016, the Gettles have ran a cattle and dairy operation on 1,100 acres in Polk County with Ryan’s parents, Chuck and Diane Gettle. Ryan is a fourth-generation farmer; his family has been in the farming business for decades. Even Ryan’s brother Brandon Gettle helped in the expansion of the farm, jointly acquiring another 500 acres of the total land owned by members of the Gettle family.
