Part of the Pickering Farm herd of approximately 100 milk cows are eating hay in the milk barn portion of the barn. The milking herd consisted of Holstein and Gurnsey breeds of cattle. The stantions which hold the cows heads were set up so that pulling a single lever would open all the stantions on one side at a time.
