Slow-Mo Rabbits. What big ears you have!
We've been challenged by Billings Farm & Museum to help tell the story about farming in Vermont. As part of the Dairy in the Classroom program, Vermont students take trips to local dairy farms to learn about where dairy products come from. This program is funded by Vermont dairy farmers. On this day, Fairfield Center School students visited the Sweet Farm in Fletcher to see how new technology is changing the way family dairies are managing their farms. Robotic milkers give farmers more flexibility in how they use their time and more time to devote to farm management or other activities.

We challenge you to share your story!#farmphotochallenge #VtDairy
Challenging all Vermonters to share their farm story! #farmerphotochallenge. Every day for the next week, @billingsfarm will be sharing one photo that offers a behind-the-scenes view into the lives down on the farm, and the wonderful cows and other livestock that make it all worthwhile. We hope you’ll learn a little more about what it takes to be a farmer, and the countless hours of hard work involved. 
For Day 1, there’s no better way to start than with a photo of one of our newest arrivals to the cow barn. It might not seem like it now, but in just a few years this calf will be a champion milker, helping to produce delicious cheddar cheese, just like Mom! We’re proud of our heritage as one of the oldest herds of registered Jerseys in the United States, with a history stretching back nearly 150 years, and are dedicated to keeping every generation of dairy cows happy, healthy, and productive.
