On April 15 & 16, over 400 grade 3 students and 100 adults visited the OAS Event Centre to learn about farming, agriculture and healthy eating. This program is curriculum based and provided to local schools at no charge by the Orangeville Agricultural Society. Children spent time visiting several different pods: Beef, Horses, Alpacas, Public Health, Poultry, Soil & Crop, Dairy and Goats.
Students got up close to various livestock animals, including this Holstein calf. Her mom helped teach about how we get milk.
Eggs were under heat lamps, ready to hatch. By day two, the little one above appeared.
This Plymouth Rock rooster was cock-a-doodle-dooing throughout the day.
We hope everyone who attended enjoyed their time and learned something new. We would love to hear from you if you were part of this event. Let us know your thoughts.
