Mobile Dairy Classroom a sure fire hit for youth

Southwest & Southland Dairy Farmers

A new feature for 2024 is the addition of the Mobile Dairy Classroom, which is designed to teach youth about the dairy industry and offers a traveling milk parlor with a live cow and oral presentation.

The Mobile Dairy Classroom is presented by the Southwest and Southeast dairy farmers, which is made possible by an alliance of dairy farmers from Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, Oklahoma, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina.

Producers have pooled their resources to offer consumer education in nutrition, to promote daily product use and provide dairy product information.  During 2019, the mobile classrooms made presentations to more than 675,000 people at fairs, festivals, livestock shows and school settings. 

Attendees can find the Mobile Dairy Classroom on the dirt side of the Western State Bank Expo during the 2024 70th Annual 3i SHOW.  Presentation times are 2, 3 and 4 p.m., March 12;  10 a.m., noon, 2 and 4 p.m., March 13; and 10 a.m., March 14.
