Students’ visit to Steed’s Dairy Farm

First and second grade students at Douglas Elementary School recently got the opportunity to visit Steed’s Dairy Farm located in Grovetown, GA. The teachers decided to take learning outside the classroom so that students could experience firsthand where their milk comes from and how food is grown and made. Steed’s is a working dairy farm that specializes in dairy product and agricultural education. Students were able to see, touch and learn about farm animals. Second grade teacher Mrs. Lott stated, “This was such a great educational experience for our students.” They were also able to see a live cow milking demonstration and even got to make butter. While watching the milking demonstration, students learned about the process in which milk goes through from farm to table. Based on the students’ excitement, smiles and bonding with the farm animals, this dairy farm visit certainly seemed like an experience they won’t soon forget.
