DCC’s Mobile Dairy Classroom headed back to schools

DCC’s Mobile Dairy Classroom headed back to schools
The Dairy Council of California’s Mobile Dairy Classroom is kicking off 2013-14 academic year visits to elementary schools throughout California. The free farm-to-school learning program teaches students about the important role agriculture and milk play in their lives and health.
 To help ensure students throughout California are able to experience the Mobile Dairy Classroom traveling assembly, numerous California dairy producers provide Dairy Council of California with cows and calves to bring to school campuses.
California dairy producers contributing cows and calves for this school year’s assemblies include: VanderSchaaf Dairy in Bakersfield; Sweeney Dairy in Visalia; Bay Meadow Farms and Cal Denier Dairy in Galt; Moonglow Dairy in Moss Landing; Hinkley Dairy in Hinkley; Ontario Ranch Holsteins in Chino; Moreda Valley Farms in Tracy; and Mission Viejo Future Farmers of America (FFA), Covina FFA, Santa Paula FFA and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
On average, Mobile Dairy Classroom conducts 170 assemblies a month throughout Southern and Northern California and in the Central Valley and Central Coast. Visit HealthyEating.org/MDC. If you are interested in providing a cow, call 310.342.6122.
