Longfellow Visits a Dairy Farm
- Lynn Nelson, Longfellow 45-15 Choice Elementary School
- Community Involvement
In the beginning of May, our 3rd graders took a field trip to tour a dairy farm. This farm is located just east of Rochester, MN. Most of the 3rd graders had never been to a farm. During our tour we saw the milking parlor, the area where most of the milking cows feed and rest during the day, and the calf barn. While we were in the large barn, a calf was born. This was the first time a calf had been born during a tour. We also learned a lot about the farming occupation. Most of the milk at this dairy farm was sold at our local Kwik Trip.
