Take your students on a virtual field trip and visit a California dairy farm!
Visit a dairy farm virtually with Dairy Council of California, Real California Milk, and the Mobile Dairy Classroom - the original “farm to school” program in California! During our virtual field trips, students will learn all about dairy farming, including how milk and dairy foods are produced and the nutritional benefits of dairy products. These virtual field trips are the perfect fit for your school’s distance learning program during the COVID-19 pandemic
First stop on our 45-minutes virtual field trips is the Mobile Dairy Classroom, where students will learn all about cows, from their anatomy to how they produce milk. Students will then zoom over to a real California dairy farm for a virtual tour. They’ll meet real farmers and see how dairy cows are fed and milked, learn how farmers care for their dairy cows, and discover the sustainability measures dairy farmers implement on their farms. Our virtual farm field trips end with Q&A, providing students the opportunity to engage with the farmers and ask their questions.
The Mobile Dairy Classroom is a program provided by the Dairy Council of California and is recognized as the original “farm to school” program in the state – operating since the 1930s.
For a century, Dairy Council of California has empowered stakeholders, including educators, health professionals and community leaders, to elevate the health of children and families through the pursuit of lifelong healthy eating habits.
The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) is funded by the state's dairy farm families and has one purpose: to nourish the world with the wholesome goodness of Real California Milk.
