Millers Dairy Creemore June 25 Tour Photos/ Disregard July 20 date, Calendar purposes only
Jul 20 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Our family began milking Jerseys in 1959 as Jersey milk was in strong demand because of its exceptional quality. All of our present-day cows can be traced back generations to our original herd. John’s father always said what impressed him most was that the Jersey cow breeds true to her genetic line. There was never any discussion about switching breeds. We knew Jersey cows meant always having a quality product.
The tour of the Miller Dairy Farm was enjoyed by 18 members and guests. A few basics:

The farm occupies an 800 acre dairy and crop operation and is home to Jalon Jerseys, a 100% purebred herd, consisting of 130 milking cows and an equal number of young stock. The farm grows their own high quality feed, and also acquire the services of a professional nutritionist. The farm has been in the Miller’s family for five generations and he has been a fluid milk producer for more than fifty years.

Our host John Miller was energetic, captivating and extremely knowledgeable. He continually kept us in awe and our questions never seemed to stop. One topic, of particular interest to everyone was the big question: is A2 milk (sold by Miller) easier to digest and healthier than other cow’s milk on the market. An Udder-ly lively and complicating conversation ensued.

Of course everyone enjoyed seeing the “girls” in their luxury hotel (barn) and we were free to pet them if we dared. Not unexpected our tour highlight was the product sampling table with Strawberry and chocolate milk and a variety of ice cream flavours. (me thinkist the spoons were too small.) Two hours disappeared in a flash!

Afterwards we enjoyed a wonderful meal and lively conversation on the patio at the Old Mill House Pub, the weather cooperating immensely.
