The “Adopt a Cow” program created and administered through the Center for Dairy Excellence and Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin adjusted things a bit to introduce K-8 students to 10 Wisconsin dairy calves. The students got to monitor daily activities of the calves and the farm families caring for them, and became a part of classroom instruction about where food comes from, what farmers really are, and more.

Three of the calves featured came from Synergy Dairy Farm in Pulaski. Sharlamagne – a red and white Holstein calf; Seroogy – a Jersey calf, and Dorito, a black and white Holstein.

Heather Jauquet and her son, Evan, found the engagement with the classrooms interesting and fun – and the supportive comments and physical mail they received was a little overwhelming!

Synergy Dairy Farm will wrap up their Adopt a Calf story with a special one hour, interactive virtual farm tour, on Wednesday, April 27th.

This one program has reached more than 1 million students in all 50 states.

Arla Foods is examining how dairy farming can help improve soil biology, carbon capture, water quality and biodiversity via regenerative farming methods.
