Milk Until The Cows Come Home

A Jersey cow greets you as you pull up to the Southwest Dairy Farmers Museum in Sulphur Springs, Texas.

FYI: Here in America there are two types of milk cows that are used "most" of the time for milk, Holsteins, and Jerseys.  Holsteins are the black and white cows and are used because they give a lot of milk. Jerseys are the brown cows and give less milk but more cream.

The museum showcases the importance of the dairy industry's past, present, and future and is funded by the dairy checkoff program, thus all of its programs and functions are made possible by dairy farmers. The museum, which consists of a 10,000-square-foot facility, serves as the headquarters for the many activities sponsored by the Southwest Dairy Farmers.

The museum's exhibits include the life of a dairy farm before electricity came to rural areas and demonstrations on separating cream, the first stem in dairy production. Visitors may also enjoy a lunch and ice cream at the museum M-F, from 9 am until 4 pm.
