Thank-you for taking the time to share your feedback. We will pass it on to those responsible for those areas.
Like many, I'm an animal and nature lover at heart. The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum feeds the need to experience the outdoors, farming, science, learning and critters all under several roofs. The exhibits are very well put together, clear, informative and do not weigh...More

Hello, The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum is a working farm. One of the goals of the Museum is to show where food comes from and how a typical Canadian farm operates. There are many farm staff that take great care of the animals on the farm. The health and happiness of the animals is very important to all our staff. The animals get regular vet visits to ensure they are healthy. The Beef Cattle and horses go outside daily year round. The sheep and goats spend most of the spring, summer and fall outdoors. The dairy cows go outside nightly once the field is safe (in the spring, summer and fall), after their evening milking. At a young age the calf are mostly kept in separate pens in the barn, but they do spend time outside together. The older cows that are not currently being milked do spend most of the spring, summer and fall outdoors.
