Dairy Farm School Visit
The Southern Dairy Farm came to our school with Belle, a jersey cow. The students loved hearing about how the cow has multiple stomachs and how she only eats healthy foods to help her make milk. They loved seeing where milk came from and how sweet the farmer was with Belle. She was part of his family and he treated her well. Students went home and told their parents about this experience.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are now choosing milk as their beverage choice for breakfast and lunch. Students talk about where the milk came from as they are eating lunch!

How did you accomplish your goals?

My team was able to help facilitate the crowds outside so that everyone could hear the farmer talk about Belle.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We already have this on the calendar for next school year.
