Forest, Farms and Mines Day 4

Today we visited a dairy farm – Strandhead Farm in Tarbolton. We found out all about the skills needed to be a farmer and work with animals. It was great fun getting to see the cows up close and see where our milk comes from.

Forest, Farms and Mines Day 2

Today we had a visit from Rheeta the cow. We learned how cows produce milk and even had a go at trying to milk Rheeta! We also got to see a vintage plough and a modern tractor. We found out that you need good ICT skills to be a farmer as many of the tractors can be controlled by satellite.
