Each farm will provide six expecting mothers and will share their passion for dairy farming and personal stories as they visit with all of you. These family farms are great examples of the dedication and commitment that it takes to farm in New York State. The farm owners, employees and numerous industry leaders will be available every day at the exhibit to answer your questions, share experiences on and off the farm, and help everyone better understand modern animal agriculture.
