Mobile dairy classroom program available


The Southwest Dairy Museum Inc. and Southland Dairy Farmers is sponsoring the Mobile Dairy Classroom, which is available for free visits in Kentucky schools.

The Mobile Dairy Classroom is a part of Southland Dairy Farmers’ agricultural and nutritional education program. The 32-foot traveling classroom features a fully operational milking parlor and carries a live milk cow to schools, fairs and festivals. The Mobile Dairy Classroom can be enjoyed by all ages, but is targeted toward grades 2-12.

Trained instructors teach audiences the importance of wholesome dairy foods in a healthy diet as they demonstrate the modern milking process, with an emphasis on environmental practices, food safety and animal care. This program includes a 30- to 45-minute oral presentation by a trained instructor, printed material for teachers, an actual milking demonstration and a question-and-answer period.
