Milking Parlor

The unique double-eight milking parlor is a renowned highlight of the Dairy Center. This Boumatic milking system demonstrates both herringbone and parallel parlor styles side-by-side, making it the only dairy educational facility to feature this type of comparison.


A viewing platform allows visitors to watch the process of cows being milked anytime. Milkings are done three times daily: 4:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., each milking takes about two hours to complete.
