Many of you probably know there is a goat farm in Singapore called Hay Dairies. However, do you know that there is actually a cow farm in Singapore?
The cow farm is one of its kind in Singapore and is free to visit. They are open daily from 9am to 6pm except for Deepavali.
On the day of our early morning visit, the owner just went out and we ‘explored’ the farm ourselves without guidance (there are other staff around busy with their work).
You can take a walk at the back of the working area to the cattle shed to have a look at the cows.
At the cow farm, there were at least 20 adult cows scattered throughout cattle shed. Most were sitting idly and a few immediately took interest of us and move towards us. We found out later that you can actually purchase some hay to feed the cattle. They must be waiting for us to feed them. So sorry.
Little surprise find while in the cow farm – Goats. There are probably a little more than 15 goats with their kid. The kids (the term used for young goats) are adorable and not shy at all and will even allow you to touching them.
As there were limited or almost no information and guide, we were no wiser after the visit on the the animals’ feeding habits, the milking processes, fertility treatments and other relevant information that visitors to farms like these would often like to know.
