Kile Long, of Sterling, explains the milking process to visitors of his family's dairy farm. The Long farm, third on this year's barn tour, is the only one on the tour that is a third-generation operation. The barn can house up to 40 milking cows, and the farm has registered Holstein cattle which need to be milked twice a day. The farm supplies milk to cheese and ice cream makers.
