It was fun zooming our cow Oreo today!! 🐮
This morning the 2nd graders in Algona were once again able to see and ask questions through our Adopt A Cow Program with Classroom Educator and Beef Farmer, Sara Preston. They learned more about getting ready for calving season as their cows will be having calves (babies) in the next month or two. They were then able to see their own cows and ask questions!
It is so much fun to see the excitement and interest these kids have in beef cattle! Thank you Algona Community School District for your support in our program!
Students earned walk to the park as a class wide behavior reward so we took advantage of this beautiful day and went! ☀️😃
We named our cow today! Meet Oreo!
Thanks to Ag in the Classroom for this fun and new adopt a cow program! The kids are loving it already! 🐮🐮🐮🐮
What a fun homecoming week! 🖤❤️
