Farmers, Robots and Technology – Caring for Cows
March 19, 2024
1 p.m.-1:30 p.m. (MT)
In the 1940s, one farm in the United States produced enough food to feed 19 people. Today, one US farm produces enough to feed 172 people. This increase is due to the advancement of science and technology.
Join us LIVE as we visit a dairy to learn how robots and other technology helps farmers feed, monitor, milk and keep their cows as healthy as possible.
This trip is designed for students in grades K-5, with additional classroom resources available upon registration.
