The Mobile Dairy Classroom is a traveling milking parlor featuring a live cow and an oral presentation.  A trained instructor will talk about the nutritional aspect of milk, demonstrate the modern milking process, describe how milk goes from the farm to the consumer, and then answer questions from the audience. This is an innovative program that brings the dairy experience directly to children. At schools, students and teachers share an experience that includes math, science, health (nutrition), and agriculture, all presented in an outdoor classroom format.  The mobile dairy classroom is FREE of charge courtesy of the Southwest Dairy Farmers.
