Farm Tour Part 2

On October 29, 4th grade students from Lightfoot Elementary, Gordon Barbour Elementary, and Orange Elementary visited Kenwood Dairy Farm and Knight Cattle Company.  They spent their time at the dairy learning about baby calves, the milking parlor, what calves and cows eat, watersheds, and how things grow. While visiting Knight Cattle company, students learned about area and perimeter, Virginia regions and products, animal agriculture, how to grow a hamburger and making healthy food choices, and then made an art project with four different grains.
All the students were provided with a choice of white, chocolate, and strawberry milk to go with their lunches, courtesy of Kenwood Dairy farm.  We would like to thank all of our volunteers who were able to make this an awesome educational experience for all of the students!
