On Saturday 15th April, I went to visit a working dairy to see the cows being milked in Jancourt, near Bellevue Farmstay. There are about 600 cows on the farm and they are mainly Fresian cows with some Jersey cows. The cows come into a holding pen waiting to be milked.
When it’s their turn, they go into the big rotary dairy and the farmer, Chris, puts suction cups on the cow’s teats to collect the milk. The cows go around on the rotary dairy and go back to the paddock after being milked.
