Are dairy cows fed before or after they are milked?

During. The food keeps them calm during the milking period.

Before, it relaxes them and the milking starts as they begin to eat. It takes hours before the entire herd is finished.

Either, both, or during. The farms I worked milked twice a day and the cows were pastured the rest of the time. Sometimes, hay was placed in front of them, which made them a little more eager to get in the stanchions and kept them calmer while being milked.

Cows normally get milked really early in the morning so after generally.

The lucky ones are outside where they can graze on grass all day

They have the food there the whole time. And a place to poo behind. Most cows live in a very confined place. They don't move at all.
