Mobile Dairy Classroom Visits Meadows

Where does milk come from? If you ask students at Meadows Elementary School, they will know the answer. Ralph Keel from Southwest Dairy Farmers brought Lexie the cow to school recently. He talked about the 800 pound Jersey cow and how the milk she produces is nutritional and full of vitamins. The students also learned how much Lexie must eat and drink each day to produce milk. What’s the most common questions kids ask about Lexis? She’s brown, so why isn’t she giving chocolate milk.
