Presenting at Rural Education Days
Our county Farm Bureau and Extension office host Rural Education Days (Project RED). Third graders from all over the county come to council grounds where there are different agricultural learning stations.
One day at Project RED my grandpa and I co-led the dairy station. At the dairy station we talked about how much a cow eats and drinks in a day and showed many types of feed. We also talked about how a milker works and how the milk gets from a dairy farm to you. We also talked about the six different breeds of dairy cows.
I gave my presentation 10 times during the day for an audience of 50 people each time. It is important to teach people about dairy because most people don’t really know what happens on a dairy farm. It is important for them to know how we care for our animals and that milk is a natural, nutritional drink.
