Every other day, a different farm is featured at the Dairy Cow Birthing Center at the New York State Fair. Today, we welcome Scipio Springs Dairy in Cayuga County, New York.

This 800-cow farm is owned and operated by Jon Gilbert and Bill Morgan who are first generation farmers, starting out in an open soybean field and building a state-of-the art dairy farm. Jon said, “We choose to be in agriculture. We choose to be dairy farmers.”

Jon and Bill are committed to providing the best care possible for their animals. “The lights are always on here on this farm. Someone is always here to take care of a newborn calf or a cow that gets sick. Someone always has to be here,” Jon said.

Thanks for taking time to watch this short, 2-minute video that portrays not only the pride but the progress of New York’s dairy farms.
