Barnyard Babies Birthing Center
With the goal of educating the public and inspiring young people to want to learn more about farming and agriculture, the Barnyard Babies Birthing Center made its appearance at the Woodstock Fair in 2008. In the years since its inception, the Barnyard Babies Birthing Center has faced the challenges and growing pains of any new endeavor and has blossomed into a popular attraction!
The BBBC, as the center is affectionately referred to, is staffed by area farmers with extensive animal husbandry experience, Future Farmers fo America students from Killingly, and volunteers who are eager to learn and help. Additionally, there are local veterinarians on site for the the duration of the Fair.
The exhibit presents a variety of baby farm animals as well as cows calving. This year, quite an array of babies that will be at the Woodstock Fair including ducks, goats, llamas and alpacas as well as pigs and mini pigs! Cows and sheep will also be birthing, Mother Nature willing!
