When the American-born Millenia farmer Robert Smith was a boy, his mother would go out to the barn to fetch milk for his family.
When she returned, the cows were dead, and the milk had spoiled.
Now, they’ve been in the barn for generations.
Smith, the grandson of a miller in upstate New York, grew up in a small farm community near the Canadian border and studied zoology at Cornell University.
He went on to become a veterinarian and eventually became a certified farm animal technician.
He has owned Millenias Mill Farm, a dairy farm in upcountry Wisconsin, for nearly a century, and it is a proud home to a large herd of animals including a 1,200-pound cow, four golden retrievers, three geese and one goat.
Millenia Farm was named in honor of Smith’s grandfather, who was born on the same day as the first farm in Wisconsin, in 1884.
The mill’s namesake, Millenius, was born about the same time.
Millenians Mill Farm is located near St. Francis, Wisconsin, about 60 miles north of Madison.
(The St. Louis Post-Dispatch)Smith’s Millenial Farm is a dairy-based operation that has been in business for about three decades.

There are also two breeding operations for pigs and six other breeds of dairy animals.
Smith’s Mill is located on a rural road in the northern part of the state.

The animals, usually between six and nine months old, are packed into a barn with about 200 cows.
