Only two weeks before we pack up and move into the New York State Fair for twelve days to share the miracle of life with its nearly one million fairgoers. We’ve made a lot of improvements to the exhibit this year and we are bringing back all the popular aspects, including three births a day (of course). What’s new is more seating, large viewing screens so everyone can get an up close and personal shot of the action, virtual farm tours of the host farms, heifers that were born last year at the State Fair and an automated backscratcher. Lots of great things to see and experience – but none of them would be possible without the very generous support of our sponsors.
A very special thank you to the New York Corn and Soybean Growers Association who once again provided us the seed money to initiate this exhibit and see it to fruition. But it is a team effort.
Much like a dairy farm itself, everyone has a role and the more hands to help, the more we can accomplish. The following companies and organizations all share in our mission to enhance the public’s awareness and understanding of dairy farms and we thank them for their contributions to the Dairy Cow Birthing Center.
And please consider thanking them in person – at the Dairy Cow Birthing Center – August 21 – September 1, 2014 at the New York State Fair. It’s a show like no other.
