For the third year, families are invited to meet “Santa on the Farm,” along with about 300 dairy cows, at the Iowa Dairy Center at Northeast Iowa Community College in Calmar.

Dairy Center Chair David Lawstuen says their drive-thru event from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday evening will feature lots of holiday lights, the Dairy Princess, cookies, milk and activities for the kids, and a first-hand look at their free-stall dairy milking facility in action.

Lawstuen says, at any one time, their Dairy Robotics Center will be harvesting milk from about half of their 300 dairy cows.

“Santa on the Farm” is free, but free will donations are welcome.
