Milking Parlor

See how milk gets from the "cow to the cup" at the Stock Show's unique Milking Parlor. Experts from Southwest Dairy Farmers conduct milking demonstrations and provide valuable information on the importance of milk in our diets. The organization is an alliance of dairy farmers from Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and North Carolina. These men and women have pooled their resources to provide consumer education in nutrition, to promote dairy product use, and provide dairy product information.
