Family Day at the Dairy Farm, Saturday April 1

The University of Florida will hold its fifth Family Day at the Dairy Farm open house on Saturday April 1, 2017 at the UF dairy farm in Hague, 20 minutes northwest of Gainesville. The public is welcome from 9 AM to 2 PM. This free event will take place rain or shine.  First held in 2013, Family Day at the Dairy Farm is educational and fun for children and adults alike. Visitors can watch cows being milked, tour barn facilities, pet calves, make butter and learn how UF/IFAS dairy research and Extension help the state’s dairy farmers produce better milk at lower cost, while keeping their herds comfortable, happy and healthy, and protecting the environment.  Family Day at the Dairy Farm is presented by the UF/IFAS Department of Animal Sciences, with support from Florida Dairy Farmers Inc. and the UF College of Veterinary Medicine.  More information is available at
