Animals

The milking herd currently consists of 100 lactating Holsteins.  The rolling yearly herd average for milk production is about 23,000 lbs. All of the cows are registered with their respective breed associations and are classified regularly. The current BAA for type for the Holsteins is 104.

While we do not show cattle, we select sires based on both production and type characteristics, particularly those that contribute to herd longevity. There are approximately 100 calves and heifers on the farm. Both cows and heifers are bred artificially so no bulls are maintained on the farm. All of the animals on the Coldstream Dairy Research Farm are available for research projects.
