7. Farm Tour
The farm buildings are original and few changes have been made to the structures. The milk house is small and cluttered with various tools and supplies. The medicine cabinet is packed with various pharmaceutical agents, cleaning solutions and other supplies. The poorly lit and ventilated tie-stall barn houses the 60-cow milking herd. A walkway traverses the middle of the barn and cows are tied facing the walls on each side. Three calves are tied at one end of the tie-stall barn, while 21 calves are in two pens on a manure pack and one end of the barn. Breeding-age heifers and dry cows are located outside in a wet and muddy lot, with a lean-to serving as protection from the weather.
