Real Life Adventures - Farmer Wants A Cow

We left Thursday morning with lots of excitement and expectations of what the adventure might entail. On Friday afternoon we came home exhausted, yet satisfied with many stories to share. During our time away we visited a sales yard and saw a number of cows being auctioned. On the dairy farm we witnessed a calf being born. (One of the farm hands had to pull the calf out!) Inside the milking shed some of us had a go at hand milking a cow. In the evening the farmers showed us how to make yoghurt and cheese from milk. The next morning we churned cream into butter for our toast. Before coming home, we fed some one-week-old calves using bottles. They were so cute we wanted to bring one home to put in the school garden!

In other words, everything was awesome! To check out more photos visit our flickr page
