They came, they saw, they milked

The fourth annual Breakfast on the Dairy Farm event at Yff Dairy near Red Deer on June 18 attracted more than 500 visitors.

Along with a free breakfast, visitors were able to ask questions of milk farmers, a milk hauler, and herd veterinarian. They became acquainted with the cows themselves and even tried their hand at milking with an activity called Race the Farmer.

Organized by the East of Olds Dairy Club, the Southern Alberta Holstein Club, and Alberta Milk, the event was started to create awareness for the provincial dairy industry and increase understanding of the farm-to-fridge process.
