Field Trip to the Dairy Farm!
Earlier this summer, for our 'Preschool at Home', Peanut was learning all about farms and where our food comes from. While in Iowa, we had the opportunity to visit a real dairy farm!
We saw a calf being born as soon as we got there, and then the girls got to help feed the calves.
The calves are only a few days or weeks old, so they still have their sucking reflexes!
Monkey even got to hand feed one of the newborns!
We did get to see where they milk the cows too, but they seemed to spook easily, so I didn't take pictures in there. This family owned farm sells it's milk to a local cheese factory, but the amount of milk they sell in a year is only enough for the cheese factory to run for two days! We had such a fun time and Peanut still talks about it!
