Visiting the Egan Dairy Farm

Visiting the Eagan Dairy Farm

While in the Ottawa area we took an afternoon to visit Louise’s cousin Ed’s dairy farm. This was the kids first experience at a real live working farm. Ed has around 55 dairy cows in production and quite a few more in the corral resting or calving. They also have a small herd of calves at various stages of growth and a whole flock of chickens producing eggs. And cats. Lots of cats in the barn! Andrew got to help feed the calves and Melanie helped to milk a cow. And everyone got to clean up the poop (there’s a lot of that on a farm). It was an eye-opening experience and we all enjoyed our visit to the farm!
