The adoption barn is closed for the 2017-2018 school year. Please click below if you are interested in signing up next year.

The St. Louis District Dairy Council has partnered with dairy farmers in Illinois and Missouri to bring our Adopt-A-Cow program to classrooms. The program, designed for grades kindergarten through second, allows classes to “adopt” a calf from one of our partner farmers, name it, and receive monthly pictures and updates, all while learning about dairy foods and dairy farming.
In addition to the updates on the growth and development of the calf, monthly emails and print packets will contain digital and printable educational materials, such as:
  • Educational activity sheets on dairy farming, dairy’s role in a nutritious diet, bone health, and dental health
  • Games
  • SMART Board lessons
  • Dairy farm videos
  • Coloring books
  • Hands-on activities

If you’re interested in learning more about this program, or would like to adopt a calf for the 2018 school year, please submit your information below and we’ll be in touch!
