Holy Cow! California Ag Day Was MOOOvelous

21, March 2014 8:31 AM


This week, Dairy Council of California staff, Mobile Dairy Classroom and families joined dozens of other organizations and promotional boards in celebrating California Agriculture Day in front of the Capitol building. Thousands attended to learn about the agricultural contributions made throughout the state. 

Snickers the Holstein was on hand to show children and adults where their milk and milk products, which are essential to a healthy diet, come from. 

 

A robotic cow offered a more hands-on approach to the origins of milk.

 

And interactive roping instructions let young and old try their lasso skills.

 

Throughout it all, community nutrition adviser Leslie Pring demonstrated Dairy Council of California's farm to school connection by sharing healthy eating handouts, shopping bags and rulers with state staffers, families and others touring the Capitol.

.

Together with other groups like California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom, California Asparagus Commission,  California Cattlemen's Association, California Milk Advisory Board, California Rice Commission, California Strawberry Commission, California Women for Agriculture and many more; we showed how agriculture works together to provide nutrient-rich food from all five food groups.
