  Students in grades 4-6 invited to take live Virtual Dairy Farm Tour

October is Farm to School Month, and as part of the festivities, the Boadwine dairy farm near Baltic, S.D., is offering a live Virtual Dairy Farm Tour Oct. 29, from 1-1:30 p.m. CDT. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions of the farmer providing the tour.

Have you and your students ever wondered how milk is produced? Or how long it takes for milk to get from farm to table? Midwest Dairy, the Department of Education’s Office of Child and Adult Nutrition Services, and South Dakota Farm Families invite your 4th – 6th grade classroom to take a live Virtual Dairy Farm Tour.

The tour will connect you directly to a real dairy for a live video tour and chat with a farmer, without leaving the comfort of your classroom. Using video chat technology, your class will get a peek at barns, cows, and more as they see and learn firsthand how dairy farmers care for their cows, the land, and produce milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream.

All that is needed to participate is an internet-connected computer and speakers. If your class cannot participate in a live tour, you can also request a recording of a tour during the registration process. Follow this registration link to register your classroom today.
