Mills Brothers Dairy Farm

My Uncle Matt and his brothers own a dairy farm in Monroe, Utah.  They have about 800 head of cattle and sell their milk to Darigold for making yogurt.  My kids had never seen it, so we took a field trip out there.

The girls loved the babies.  These babies had just been born that morning!

He took us inside and showed us the milking operation.  We got to watch the cows come in, get hooked up, the milking and exit.  It was a well run operation and happens all day long.

Matt decided to show Derek (and the rest of us city folk) how to milk a cow the “traditional way." The lesson ended when Derek got squirted in the face by mom!
