Kowhai Team Dairy Farm Trip
On Wednesday 9th November 2016, the five Kowhai Team classes went on a trip to a dairy farm in Outram. We travelled in three buses and one double decker bus.
We arrived at the farm at 10am and sat on tarpaulins on the grass to have our morning tea. Then we met the farm owners Anne-Marie and Duncan as well as the farm team of Rob, Joel and Shay. We were also introduced to:
Danny from Fonterra
Brian from Fonterra
Murray the tanker driver from Fonterra
Guy from DairyNZ
We then went to different ‘stations’ on the farm.
We left the farm at 12.30 and everyone got given a box of ‘calci-yum’ flavoured milk and an activity bag.
After that we drove to the Mosgiel Park for a picnic lunch and a play. When we arrived at the park the sun came out. It was a fantastic end to our exciting day out.
We got back to school just before home time.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt lots of new things about dairy farming.
