Kids+Cows: Dairy Council’s New Exhibit at the Cal Expo Farm

CDFA Secretary Karen Ross and State Fair CEO Rick Pickering joined Dairy Council of California leaders and volunteers at Cal Expo in Sacramento this morning to welcome two busloads of students from nearby Elk Grove to tour a fresh, new exhibit and learn about dairy farms, cows, milk and nutrition. Secretary Ross also did a quick, live interview and walk-thru for local television.

The Dairy Council of California developed the dairy unit at the California State Fair Kaiser Permanente Farm thanks to a grant from the CalAgPlate Grant Program, which dedicates funds from the sale of specialized agriculture-themed license plates to promote agricultural education and leadership activities for students at the kindergarten through 12th grade, post-secondary and adult education levels.
