Dairy Cow Milking Demonstration at Family Farm

1st January – 31st December

Dixie is our Holstein-Freisian dairy cow visiting Family Farm over the summer months! Dixie hails from Kilwarden Dairies in Co. Kildare. On the dairy farm, Dixie spends her days grazing luscious green pastures, producing 30-40 Litres of fresh milk each day. On Family Farm, Dixie takes a well-earned rest, spending her days munching on crunchy hay for a few months of the year. Here she is milked twice a day by our lovely Zookeeper Louise, producing up to 20 Litres of milk daily. Come see Dixie at Family Farm where you will learn all about the important contribution she makes to the Irish Dairy Industry!
