JKES students did not have to travel far to visit the farm this week. Instead of traveling to the farm via a school bus, the farm came to the school.
Students in first and second grade welcomed Ginger the cow and her Mobile Dairy Classroom to the JKES parking lot.
A Mobile Dairy Classroom instructor from Southland Dairy Farmers taught students how cows are milked, the importance of dairy foods, the nutritional content of milk, parts of a cow, and food safety procedures.
A special thank you Southland Dairy Farmers and Ginger for this educational experience.
