Phaedra looks closely at the newly born calves at the UI Dairy. The newborns weigh 80 lbs! 
There was a lot of information about what it takes to produce milk, how cows create it in their system, and comparisons to other types of milk in terms of nutrition. The kids were very amazed at the Milking Parlor because it only takes  5-8 minutes to milk a cow!
Before we got started looking at dairy, we studied the My Plate Healthy Diet recommendations. The kids thought about what they eat and how to make choices that help grow their body and brain. We thought about how dairy fits into our daily lives.
