Land O'Lakes Birthing Barn

Observe + Ask Questions

Farm Wisconsin Birthing Barn!

The Land O’Lakes Birthing Barn is open from 10:00AM to 4:00PM daily and provides visitors with the chance to view a cow giving birth in a clean and quiet environment. In our first year we had over 250 calves born in the Birthing Barn!

We ask all our viewers to “Shhhhhhhh. . .” as our cows are in labor, delivery, and after birth.  Most cows give birth with no assistance, but our Birthing Barn Manager is always available to assist if necessary. The Birthing Barn Manager will tell our guests what is happening at each stage of the birth and answer any questions you may have! 

Our cows and calves go back to the Grotegut Dairy Farm every night, enjoying the ride back and forth. We hope your visit is on a day when we have a cow ready to give birth. It is an unforgettable, educational experience that the whole family will enjoy!
