Getting milk from the source

Thursday, May 4, 2006

Cathy Smith, a Staunton Elementary School kindergartener, tries to milk a cow Wednesday under Ronald Scherb's supervision.

For the past eight years, Scherb has been inviting youngsters from Clay County to tour his dairy operation. On Wednesday, 25 kindergarten students in Diane Smith's class went on a field trip down on the farm. Students learned how to milk a dairy cow and bottle-feed calves.

All of the children had a chance to milk the cow and feed the calves. Scherb had made a hay maze for the kids, took them on a hay ride and provided ice cream and cookies.
