A dairy great virtual field trip!

Can you answer these cow questions?

  • How is a Jersey cow different from other breeds of dairy cattle?
  • What technology is used to raise dairy cattle and produce milk?
  • What does the farmer do to keep the cattle safe?
  • What happens to the milk after it leaves the cow?

Almost 200 children took a virtual field trip to Waterman Dairy Farm to learn about these things and more. After the tour, students were able to ask questions of the tour host. Teacher Claudia Dwight commented, “This was a great session. My students enjoyed it!”

Nepris, the organizer of these virtual field trips, provides a link to the recording for viewing at a later time. Watch this tour at your convenience!
