The five Femco farms in Wilkin County have had a lasting impact on diversified farming in Minnesota, experimenting with stock raising, crop rotation and soil fertilization. Used for Holstein dairy operations, this unusual barn is actually two gambrel-roofed dairy barns connected by a lower gambrel-roofed corridor.
