Adopt A COw

Kindergarten through second grade classrooms can dive into learning about dairy with the St. Louis Dairy Council Adopt A Cow program!

The program allows classes to “adopt” a calf on an Illinois dairy farm, name it and receive monthly pictures and updates.

After signing up, the classroom will receive a printable birth certificate, which they can use to name the calf, and a poster to track the calf’s growth through the monthly photos that the teacher will receive via email.

To find out more & register by Sept. 13! Click here.
