The Round Barn, A Biography of an American Farm, Volume One: Silo and Barn, Milkhouse, Milk Routes

Based on extensive primary materials from the Dougan Dairy of Beloit, Wisconsin, The Round Barn tells an authentic, sometimes gritty, often humorous story of a “life as well as a living.” Making use of extensive oral histories, documents, letters, diaries, photographs, and creative nonfiction, Jacqueline Dougan Jackson faithfully re-creates the story of her family’s farm in a chronicle that spans over seven decades.             Volume One focuses on the farm’s milk business—from tending the cows to processing the milk to milk delivery—and it illustrates the partnership between the Dougan Dairy and the University of Wisconsin’s College of Agriculture in all its groundbreaking scientific influence.

Jacqueline Dougan Jackson is the author of fourteen books, including Stories from the Round Barn and More Stories from the Round Barn. A founding faculty member of Sangamon State University, now University of Illinois–Springfield, she has had her fiction read over Wisconsin Public Radio. She grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm amidst extended family and pet goats.
