Dairy Cow Birthing Center

Fair Attractions 65

Returning this year is an opportunity for fairgoers to witness first-hand the miracle of life daily by watching a dairy cow give birth to a calf. The New York Animal Agriculture Coalition provides this opportunity for the public to learn more about the dairy industry, the care farmers provide their animals, as well as the birthing process. The exhibit's location is at the end of the midway. View a 24-7 live stream of the Dairy Cow Live Birthing Center, and sign up for their free alerts by texting MOO to 24587. Located behind the Expo Center next to the Circus.

  • Open Daily from 11:00am to 9:00pm
