Here is Ella and one of the cows with a newborn in the lobby of the birthing barn. We did see a live birth and the first time mother had quite a struggle. It took two birthing technicians to pull the baby calf out. It was a boy!!
We enjoyed a great bus tour out on one of the working farms and saw 72 cows bring milked at one time on a big milking machine.
30,000 head of cows and a lot of pregnant ones!! It is definitely a women's world.
We enjoyed a great grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, an ice cream cone and a few cheeses to take home.
This was really a great adventure. Mondays if you are over 55 the admission is only $4 instead of $10. Yes, we both qualified!
On Sunday, we met Alison and Natalie in Chicago and hung out for a few hours together.
A couple of fun photos here - including Alison's dog, Webster.
