Teaching kids about the dairy industry is one of our priorities. Our Mobile Dairy Classroom is a traveling milking parlor, featuring a live cow and an oral presentation. Our trained instructors will demonstrate how to milk a cow, describe how milk goes from the farm to the consumer, and then answer questions from the audience. This is an innovative program that brings the dairy experience directly to children. At schools, students and teachers share an experience that includes math, science, health (nutrition), and agriculture, all presented in an outdoor classroom format. Mobile Dairy Classroom instructors can adapt their presentations for children from elementary through high school. The program is free for schools, fairs, festivals, libraries, camps and just about everywhere. During 2013, our Mobile Dairy Classrooms made presentations to over 690,000 people at fairs, festivals, livestock shows and school settings. While our program is enjoyed by all ages, our school program is targeted at grades second through eighth. The Mobile Dairy Classroom is a division of the Southwest Dairy Museum, Inc., a non-profit, educational program funded by dairymen across the Southwest. Each Mobile Dairy Classroom Program includes:

  • A 30- to 45-minute oral presentation (Depending on the age of audience) by a trained Instructor
  • Printed educational material for teachers and students
  • A milking demonstration

Instructors teach audiences:

  • Characteristics and anatomy of dairy cows
  • The importance of dairy foods for good health
  • The modern milking process
  • Modern environmental and food safety practices.
