I'm taking you on a journey from A to Z throughout June Dairy Month.
So come on in...the barn doors are open!
L Is For Library
I am often asked to speak to groups about the workings of our dairy farm and the importance of dairy foods in our diet each day. One of my favorite "gigs" is speaking at our local library each June for dairy month.
I show lots of pictures of our farm, lots of samples of what we feed our cows, and I even talk about what happens when our cows get sick.
Since dairy farming and reading are some of my favorite things, (and raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens..thank you Sound Of Music) I love to read-aloud too. This day I read Moo! by David LaRochelle, The Cows Are in the Corn by James Young, and Cows Can't Fly by David Milgrim to my audience of 90+ kiddos!
We talk a lot about all the yummy things made with milk, and of course I always leave time for questions...
and hand out dairy goodie bags and string cheese to everyone that visits my library presentations- kids, moms, dads, grandparents too. They all leave with a bag of goodies.
This year I also left something for the library to keep. I donated two copies of The Dairy Good Cookbook for library visitors to check out. Besides yummy recipes it also shares stories and pictures of dairy farms all over America.
