Doug Barney lives near Wellsville, NY, where he owns/operates a 240 cow dairy farm with his family and four part time employees.

Fresh cows and high producers are milked 3x daily, while heifers and low-end cows are milked 2x during this transition period. Doug started farming in 2004, in an old stanchion barn that his uncles owned. He then built his own tie stall in 2007 and moved his herd of 55 in January of 2008.
He joined Middlebury Co-op in October 2018 and became a board member in 2020.
