The Great New York State Fair ran August 1 to September 1, 2014, now 182 years old. But for the second year, the Dairy Cow Birthing Center was the place to be, as fairgoers could watch a calf delivery while enjoying fried food and in-between carnival rides. Six New York Farm Families were showcased in videos at the Dairy Cow Birthing Center, which we’ve shared with you below (and above). Above, meet Karen Merrell, owner of Merrell Dairy with her husband, Jon, in Wolcott, NY. Enjoy!
