Marvellous Materials

As part of our investigations in to materials in the world around us, Mr Herriot of Harbro (Lillian’s grandpa) came to explain the manufacturing process involved in producing animal feed. Natural materials such as oats, barley, wheat, peas, sunflower seeds and molasses are part of the special recipes which mixed together make a man made material – feed for cows, sheep, hens , pigs, horses and goats.

“We got to feel all the stuff which goes in to the feed” – Jackson

” Mr Herriot had posters showing the machines” – Murray

Thank you, Mr Herriot.  A super learning visit!
