Butter Making School Program
Moo! Moo! Mmm! Mmm! In this 90-minute program, your preschool, kindergarten, and primary students will trace the journey of milk from pasture to table as it becomes butter.
Students see the life cycle of a dairy cow as they visit the calves, heifers, and cows in the Dairy Barn. They learn that mammals produce both milk and cream. Then, they transform cream into fresh butter for a tasty snack. Students also handle the tools of yesterday’s dairy farmer — pails, stool, milker, churn, and butter paddles.
