Katie did a great job of sharing how cows give us many more products besides milk. Students learned that cows help the environment by giving us fertilizer to grow crops and creating electricity through us using their waste products to create a gas called methane. Cows also help provide jobs for people in many fields and contribute to the economy. Students were able to pretend to be restaurant owners and create menus that provided plenty of dairy products to serve customers.
Katie also read a great story about a cow named Buttercup at the state fair to our classes before sharing an invitation to think about joining 4-H this year. She told students that this November will be the first time for an internet based sign-up to be in the 4-H program.
