Daisy the Incredible Milking Cow

Why is Daisy so Incredible?

I’m sure you know that cows “MOO” – so of course Daisy will MOO! Not only that, Daisy loves to talk about herself.  Stop by her exhibit in the Discovery Barn to listen to her chat about how much milk she produces, how Holstein cows came to America, how much food she eats, and other fun facts!

Oh and did we mention – you can Milk her too?

Daisy is excited to share how to milk a cow with all of the Liberty Ridge Farm visitors this Fall!

All About Daisy

Daisy, the Incredible Milking Cow is a life-size Holstein. Holsteins are leaders in dairy production. When mature, they are the largest breed of US cattle. A mature Holstein can weigh up to 1500 pounds!

Agriculture in Everyday Life

Daisy is a wonderful resource to teach children about the relationship between dairy, agriculture, and everyday life. Food doesn’t just come from the grocery store! Also in the Discovery Barn is information about different food groups – such as fruits, vegetables, beef, and poultry! See how these food groups come together to create a well-balanced meal, following the USDA MyPlate guidelines.
