SOUTHLAND DAIRY FARMERS MOBILE DAIRY CLASSROOM

This is an innovative program that brings the dairy experience directly to children. A trained instructor will demonstrate how to milk a cow, describe how milk goes from the farm to the consumer, and then answer questions from the audience. Students and teachers will share an experience that includes math, science, health (nutrition), and agriculture, all presented in a mobile classroom format.
Teacher Resources and fact sheets can be found online here.

DISCOVERY FARM sponsored by Kentucky Pork Producers

Discovery Farm offers close-up encounters with cattle, goats, llamas, sheep, horses, poultry, a sow and her litter, and other farm animals. This popular exhibition includes species-specific graphic panels and livestock learning stations, including touch screen computer games! Winning student entries in the Discovery Farm Video and PowerPoint Presentation Contest will be featured.
