Would you like your students to learn about how farmers care for their cows, conserve their natural resources and how milk impacts the economy of the local community all while being on a local dairy farm? Then apply now for one of the 40 grants available to fund a field trip to a local dairy farm! Any classroom currently enrolled in the Discover Dairy program is eligible to apply, with 15 of the 40 grants designated specifically for Pennsylvania elementary classrooms. Funds from this grant can assist in covering the cost of busing, the farm tour itself, lunch, or even a dairy treat.
Selection is based on the number of students eligible to attend the tour, previous and future plans of dairy education into the classroom and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Interested in applying but not sure how to contact a dairy farm near you?
