Dairy Complex
Facility Type

The SUNY Morrisville Dairy Complex is a free-stall dairy facility which houses 200 milking cows and is used for teaching, demonstration, and student projects. It is equipped with an electronically-enhanced milking parlor and a student-managed computer system. Also featuring two heifer barns, a calf barn and a show barn, the facility is entirely serviced by a plug-flow anaerobic digester that processes animal waste and produces electrical power.

The college’s 500 acres of cropland ensure a supply of forages for the herd.

These facilities are utilized by students in the Dairy Management B.Tech., Animal Science - Dairy A.A.S., Agricultural Business A.A.S., and Agricultural Science A.A.S. programs.
