Did you know that dairy cows eat around 40kg of food every day! All this food helps them to produce nutritious, high calcium milk, which helps us to build and maintain strong bones.

Relax and watch as the smallest calves and the biggest cows compete for blue ribbon glory at the Show.

We have heaps of milking cows to meet and if you want the full Royal Melbourne Show farmer experience, why not try your hand at milking a cow in the Livestock Pavilion!

You can also witness the future of farming as young dairy farmers aged 21 years and under compete in the Dairy Youth Handlers Classic.

Come along to the Livestock Pavilion on the Show’s opening weekend to meet some of the stars of the Victorian dairy industry.
