Exhibits change & grow...

New this year - Trains tell the story of Milk Transportation.  Come see the new Milk Train and the Metropolitan Line, created and enhanced through funding by Heritage Tourism Alliance of Montgomery County, as the they wend their way through Montgomery County to Dairies in Washington, D.C.. 

 

There are lots of things to see and do at the MOO!!!

 

Learn all about Astronaut, Montgomery County's famous Holstein Bull, who's 50th anniversary is being celebrated this year.  Our model of Astronaut will be travelling to the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin September 30th - October 4th.  During the summer we're eager to share his story with visitors.    Our model milking herd now includes Holstein, Jersey, Brown Swiss, Ayrshire and Guernsey cows.  The herd includes a very special Holstein you can try milking yourself!

Share your dairy farm story!  See "See & Do", fill in and submit the webform so we can include your family farm in our archives & on the Dairy Map. Although Montgomery County is our main focus, any farm in the Maryland-Virginia Milk Producing Region can be included in the collection of our new Dairy Research Library.

We have many school & summer camp groups visit every year.  Summer and Fall field-trip dates are still available.  Contact us soon to get your group on our list for 2014.*

With activities for the young - and young at heart - we look forward to welcoming you to the MOO.
