Triton 3rd Graders Visit Fair Oaks Dairy

September 28, 2015

Triton_FairOaksDairy_1 2015Third grader students from Triton Elementary had a beautiful day for their study trip to Fair Oaks Dairy on September 24th!  Students have been learning about different types of communities with a specific emphasis on rural communities and dairy farms.  We have learned many things such as:  parts of a dairy cow, dairy nutrition, goods and services provided from a dairy farm, and how manure can be used to create power to run electricity!

Everyone enjoyed seeing how the farm operates, playing interactive games, watching a surprising 3-D/4-D movie, tours through barns, milking parlors, and even seeing a baby girl calf born with the help of a veterinarian.

Triton_FairOaksDairy_2 2015Lunch was a great treat since we were served fresh Fair Oaks Dairy milk, and visitors could also go see a cheese factory, ice cream shop, and gift store.  Our parent helpers were outstanding assistants!  Parents and kids did a fantastic job of showing Trojan PRIDE!
