  • Fair Oaks Dairy Farm - Open to the Public, 21st Century Farming

    We found a great video about a unique dairy farm in the Midwest.  Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana gives a snapshot into the life of 21st century farming.  Its a type of Disney world for dairy farming.  They produce 2.5 million pounds of milk a day.  That’s enough to produce the milk needs for the town of Chicago and Indianapolis alone!  Its an amazing place.

    They have unique milking stations for the milk cows.  The cows get on small carousels and are milked three times a day.

    The farm also converts the manure into energy through the production of methane.

    Not only that but the cows wear transponders that allow the farmers to keep records of how much milk a cow produces and how much it has walked that day.

    Finally, if you want to see a cow being born, they have a birthing/nursing station on the farm.

    Its an amazing place.
