Event description

Description

St. Brigid’s Dairy has long been an innovator in creating and maintaining healthy perennial pastures for their herd. Now they’re innovating again as one of the first grazing operations in the region to add a milking robot to their operation. The result: happy cows and happy farmers!

Judy Gifford’s and Bob Fry’s 62-acre farm, planted in permanent pasture of perennial ryegrass and clover, features 200 animals consisting of milking cows, replacement heifers, steers and veal calves. Judy and Bob began milking their cows with the new robot this spring, allowing their cows to choose when they are ready to be milked. St. Brigid’s Farm is among the first grazers in Maryland to install a voluntary milking system! Learn about perennial pasture management and hear Judy Gifford talk about caring for her herd, marketing her products, and the lifestyle change robots can provide dairy operators.

St. Brigid’s Farm, 12246 Locust Grove Rd, Kennedyville, MD 21645
