Pre-kindergarten students from Mount Vernon Elementary School feed calves at the Talsma Dairy during a field tripPre-kindergarten students from Mount Vernon Elementary School feed calves at the Talsma Dairy during a field trip Thursday, March 28.

About 45 students and their teachers  got a close up look and learned about where milk comes from, what cows eat, and helped to feed baby calves. The students enjoyed ice cream sundaes and received an educational farm tour kit provided by local dairies and Dairy Max. The Talsma Dairy, along with other local dairies have had the privilege to host these tours for 25 years.
