Things I Learned at Wheeler Farm

  • There are different kinds of milk depending of the type of cow. Brown cows create a more creamy milk, which is better for butter making. Holstein cows produce the milk we usually drink.
  • Goats eyes are rectangle in shape so they can see all around their head.
  • Pig are actually one of the cleaner animals. They play in a separate area than they food. They also prefer a separate place to sleep and eat, which is different from their bathroom area too.
