Dairy Spring Break

Triple A Farms, also known as Anglin Dairy, was the first  stop on the spring break tour for University of Arkansas animal science students  in search of  knowledge about different types of dairy production and the day to day activities on a dairy farm.
Only one or two of the students had ever been on a dairy farm so I'm pretty sure we provided the start of a unique spring break--much more entertaining than a  sunny, sandy beach!
The cows were curious about visitors in the feed barn but they kept on eating!
The students saw first hand that dairy farmers care for their cows by providing a nutritious diet.
Although the baby calves are the last stop on the tour, it's always the favorite for any visitors!
These calves are the future of our dairy farm and it's easy to understand that we make it a priority to get them off to a healthy start with individual care and attention.


                     A fun dairy spring break tour  always ends with plenty of cheese, milk, ice cream
                                               a lot of smiles from both farmers and students!
