From Your Local Farmer to You! Our unique video, From Your Local Farmer to You: Cows, Calves, and the Story of Dairy, walks kids through a typical day at a dairy farm: how calves grow into cows, how cows are cared for, and how milking works. Dairy farm families throughout Illinois and Missouri work hard every day to bring fresh, great tasting, wholesome milk products from their farms to your fork, spoon, plate, and cup. We want to help you teach kids where their dairy foods come from and inspire them to enjoy 3 servings of dairy every day as part of a healthy diet. A fun activity sheet reinforces concepts from the video.
