Aurora Organic Dairy Expands with New Dairy Farm
Aurora Organic Dairy, Boulder, Colo., expanded its High Plains Dairy Complex east of Eaton with a new dairy—known as the High Meadows Dairy—to add 4,000 acres of farmland and pasture and make room for 3,200 more cows.
The acreage includes farmland where Aurora Organic grows organic corn and alfalfa used in cow feed and gives their dairy cows greater access to pasture. Aurora Organic’s new facility also includes a milking barn with a rotary milking parlor, which is a carousel where cows are milked.
With the addition of the dairy, Aurora Organic’s total herd has reached 22,000.
