Farmer Visit

Today as part of our inquiry learning a real-life dairy farmer came to visit. He and his wife were fantastic!

They had made a little video of their farm and what they do. The children were fascinated with the cows and how they are milked by the machines, where the milk goes, and the giant milk tanker. Another favourite was the shot of the tractor and truck feeding silage to the cows. 

Silage for us to smell.
They also brought some silage and parts of the milking machine for us to touch (and smell). I used the GoDairy website to hook us up with a farmer.

We are going to check out Rosie's world too, and meet Rosie the New Zealand dairy industry's Cowbassador.
