This site is small and oriented toward children, but is still interesting. It provides a nice overview of cattle ranching in Alabama and is worth seeing if you are in the area and are interested in ranching or farming. They do close for lunch.

If you are looking for something to do for free for all ages this is a good attraction; you learn a lot about beef; small and not overwhelming for little ones and a lot for them to do

This is a great museum! It won't take much time to visit, but the cow pics are great for kids! There is a lot of historical information, and a cute play place for kids.
