Meet the four dairy farm families who are providing cattle for the live birthing center – the Calving Corner – at the Pennsylvania Farm Show, from January 8-15. ADA North East worked with the Calving Corner team to identify farmers who would provide four cows for two days. We also helped coordinate the videos featuring each farm family that will play during the eight-day show. Click on the links to watch the videos about each farm.
