THE DAIRY BARN
With a re-creation of a barn facade, a central icon for this section of exhibits, this step-in environment explores the many facets of dairy farming . Overhead, a frieze pays tribute to the dairy farmers of the region. Inside the barn, explore Cow Wow facts of dairy and learn about the complex digestive system of a cow. An enveloping video projected onto the back wall allows visitors to watch the process of feeding, milking, grazing, birthing and raising calves, even the process of making cheese and other dairy products. Outside the barn, in the windows on either side, explore the rotating displays about new technologies in dairy ranging from robotic milking, dietary innovations and waste management.
