The dairy barn is the hub of the farm and home to our Jersey herd, where visitors can meet and interact with our cows and watch the daily afternoon milking at 3:30 p.m.
NOTE: The dairy barn is currently closed to guests due to COVID-19 safety precautions. The Heifer Barn is open to guests. The animals may be seen in the pastures.
Billings Farm’s Jersey herd has a pedigree that dates back to 1871 and is still considered one of the finest Jersey herds in North America. Averaging 70 milking cows, heifers, and calves, our cows are known for their award-winning genetics, affectionate disposition, and high-quality, high-protein milk.
Our farm staff is dedicated to providing the best possible care for each animal. Each Jersey is seen regularly by a vet and we consult regularly with a nutritionist to ensure they consume the optimum diet. During the summer, our cows are let out to pasture overnight after their second milking and return to the barns for their morning milking, remaining inside during the heat of the day.
