A dairy is a business enterprise established for the harvesting or processing (or both) of animal milk – mostly from cows or goats, but also from buffaloes, sheep, horses, or camels – for human consumption. A dairy is typically located on a dedicated dairy farm or in a section of a multi-purpose farm (mixed farm) that is concerned with the harvesting of milk. Terminology differs between countries. For example, in the United States, an entire dairy farm is commonly called a “dairy”. The building or farm area where milk is harvested from the cow is often called a “milking parlor” or “parlor”. Except in the case of smaller dairies, where cows are often put on pasture, and usually milked in “stanchion barns”.
