2014 Dairy Cow Birthing Center

Welcome to the 24-7 live webcam of the Dairy Cow Birthing Center. This is a free educational exhibit at the New York State Fair in Syracuse, New York, that showcases three live births of baby cows daily. The purpose of this exhibit is to share in real-time one of the many miracles of modern animal agriculture. Over the course of the 12 days of the State Fair, a total of 36 cows will give birth to a baby calf, representing the start of milk production and a unique opportunity for you to learn more about New York’s dairy farms and the care dairy farmers and veterinarians provide their animals.

The exhibit is organized and hosted by the New York Animal Agriculture Coalition, in cooperation with the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University.
