Bridgewater Dairy Farm, Montpelier, OH. Maumee River Valley - Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Pictures are not allowed inside the Bridgewater Dairy, so we posed on the outside.  

Dr. Leon Weaver, a veterinarian originally from Lancaster County, PA and from California, spoke to us about the 5,000 head dairy he operates with his wife and son. He gave us insight into the intricacies of the dairy industry, and the in-and-outs of selling commodities vs specialty products. We visited inside the milking parlor, and learned about the logistics of handling a herd of such great size. It was really interesting to learn more about the management skills necessary to produce milk from 5,000 cows. Learning about the business side of dairy production was an unexpected lesson from this stop in Ohio!

  1. Why no photos inside? Is there something they are hiding from the public?
