To learn more about the dairy group we visited the Lewis Dairy Farm in Bemidji, MN. We liked learning about the milking cows and the milking machines. We even got to milk the cows. The first graders also pretended to be cows in the milking stalls. At the end of our visit, we ate cheese made from the Lewis Dairy Farm milk.
