|The new 100 foot high obseration tower at Kreider Family Farms.|
|View of the chicken houses in the distance.|
|Off in the distance is the farm's water pumping station|
which they have erected to supply water for their agricultural
business. Sitting behind the pumping station are rows of
solar panels that supply the power to run the pumping station.
|A panoramic view of the dairy buildings.|
|This photo comes from Kreider's website and|
shows a tour bus going through one of the
dairy barns while the cows eat.
|On our way to the farm, we saw a farm along the|
road that had this image painted on the barn.
|Each cow has an ear tag as well as an implanted computer chip on it. The implanted chip will signal the number of the cow as it enters the milking machine.|
|This readout is next to the cow as she enters the milking machine. A computer reads the chip embedded in the cow to get this number. This is cow #810.|
|The udder is then sprayed. The unit that sprays can be seen in the bottom mid-right.|
|This worker is wiping the spray from the udder of the cow.|
|The next worker attaches the milking unit to the cow.|
|As soon as the milking machine is attached, the computer readout begins to measure the pounds of milk that the cow yields.|
|The many products that the Kreider Family Farm produces. If you live in the north-east of the United States, you may find these in your grocery store.|
