'Cow to Cup: Understanding Dairy Production and Careers in the Dairy Industry'

This presentation introduces a series of online modules developed to teach students about dairy production, and careers in the dairy industry. These interactive modules can either be used as part of a classroom presentation, or can be provided to students to work through independently in preparation for a more in depth discussion. Modules cover careers and STEM topics in breeding and genetics, farm-based production, processing of products and retailing agricultural products. The modules have been developed purposefully for alignment with science, health and wellness and other standards at the high school level.
