Take your students on a California dairy farm tour by signing up for a virtual field trip today!
Dairy Council of California's Mobile Dairy Classroom is the original “farm to school” program in California, bringing the farm experience to students to teach agricultural literacy since the 1930s.
The virtual tours are guided by a Mobile Dairy Classroom instructor and are 45-minutes, teaching students about farm life while covering a variety of lessons. Each tour provides an introduction to dairy cows to teach students the anatomy of a cow, the journey of milk, milk production and more. Each lesson also takes students on a virtual tour of a working California dairy farm where students have an opportunity to engage with a dairy farmer. As they explore the farm, student will see how dairy cows are fed and milked, learn how farmers care for their herds, and discover the numerous sustainability measures farms utilize in addition to traditional upcycling practices. Each farm tour concludes with an interactive Q&A session, which provides students with the opportunity to ask questions.
With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing many students and school communities to continue distance learning, our virtual field trips are an amazing opportunity for students to experience an unforgettable farm tour field trip. And best of all, they’re free!
Virtual and in-person assemblies are currently on summer break and return late August. To schedule a free Mobile Dairy Classroom assembly for the next school year, please contact [email protected].
