Visit to a Local Dairy Farm

The Helen Tyson FUTP 60 student team took a field trip to a local dairy farm. We learned all about how the cows are taken care of and how long it takes to get the milk from the farm to the store. They helped us understand how they keep our milk supply safe for us to drink. We watched the cows being milked and we saw where all their food is stored. We even got to pet and play with the baby calves.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our students now know that dairy is local all the time. They also have a better understanding of how the farmer works to keep our milk supply safe and healthy.
