Safe Milk Begins on the Farm

June 16, 2019 @ 11:00 am


June is Dairy Month!  Learn more about how dairy impacts our economy, planet, diet, land use, and how dairy farming connects us with heritage in the Pioneer Valley.

Join the conversation with experts across all fields of dairy (get it?!).  The Dairy Month Lecture Series is hosted by Barstow’s Longview Farm and Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery. Tours are free and begin and end at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery.

Safe Milk Begins on the Farm

Presenter: Caroline Barstow, DVM, Hess McWilliams Veterinary Services. Dr. Barstow graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 2010 and Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2016.

Food production veterinarians have the special challenge of balancing the best health care for their animal patients, keeping the client’s business profitable, and upholding public health. Get an inside look at what a large animal veterinarian can do for the cows and their farmer. Start to understand how large animal veterinarians work with the dairy industry to keep the food we consume safe while keeping the cows healthy.

Free wagon ride farm tour begins at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and will take approximately 1 hour. Please note that we cannot accommodate late arrivals.
