Free Stall Barn
The three-row, free-stall barn houses a herd of approximately 250 cows. Students use this barn extensively during their education in either the two-year Animal Science - Dairy, A.A.S. degree or the four-year Dairy Management, B.Tech. degree.
The dairy barn is equipped with an advanced ventilation system, and automatic alley scrapers which feed the anaerobic methane digester.
Students enrolled in the Dairy Management, B.Tech. and Animal Science: Dairy, A.A.S. programs at Morrisville State College benefit from the college's state-of-the-art dairy complex which houses more than 200 milking cows and has a free-stall dairy barn, electronically enhanced milking parlor and student-managed computer system, calf barns, and renewable energy facilities such as an anaerobic methane digester and 10kW wind turbine.
The 200-head heifer facility and calf greenhouses provide a tremendous learning environment for dairy students. Morrisville State College also owns more than 500 acres of cropland to support their dairy programs.
