We had a visit from the Dairy Council of California today. This morning during our morning message I told the children a cow would be visiting our school. They were very excited, and even more excited when they realized it would be a REAL cow.
At 11:00 we headed down the hill and sat on benches and were ready to listen. The presenter taught us a lot of information about cows and we learned tons of new vocabulary. The adult female cow was named Holly and she was black and white. We learned that she was a Holstein cow. We learned the parts of her body, how she is milked, and the parts of her area in the trailer. The children also learned about how a cow eats and what happens to the food. Ask your child if they remember what "regurgitate" or "cud" is.
After we learned about the adult cow, we met a bull calf named Milkdud. Milkdud was not Holly's baby. He was very cute and only 4 weeks old! The presenter informed us that Milkdud learned to walk only 1 hour after being born. On our way back to class we were able to wave goodbye to Holly and pet Milkdud. We had a lot of fun.
