Take your class on a virtual field trip to a Pennsylvania Beef Farm from the comfort of your own classroom!
This one-of-a-kind learning experience, developed for middle school and high school students, but open to all ages, will turn Pennsylvania classrooms into virtual beef farms through the use of Zoom video conferencing technology.
With the click of a mouse, students will be transported to fields, visit barns and view animals live, all while learning about how food is raised in Pennsylvania and what farmers do each day to care for their cattle.
Farmers Frank Stoltzfus and Scotty Miller from Masonic Village Farm share how beef cattle spend their time in the feedlot. Students will learn how cattle are fed and taken care of on a daily basis. Trip length: 45-minutes.
The folks at Masonic Village Beef Farm have a unique story to share. This trip educates students on the various avenues that beef (the product) is marketed. Trip length: 45-minutes.
Amy Hess from Bow Creek Farm & Cattle Company in Hershey, PA and Sallie Miller, rancher from Croissant Red Angus Ranch in Briggsdale, CO share their perspectives of raising cattle in two very different geographic areas. This is truly a unique educational opportunity for students to learn about modern-day cattle production through the lenses of two women involved in raising beef in very different parts of America! Trip length: 45-minutes.
