The Fillmore Central kindergarten class had an exciting day of agricultural education on the road, which took place Friday, May 15, 2015, as they made several stops throughout the day.

Kindergarten teachers Mrs. Schumacher and Mr. Anderson, who is a long-term substitute teacher for Mrs. Duff, had a busy and fun-filled day planned for their students.

The day began at Rumpus Ridge Dairy Farms owned by the Gartner family, where the children learned a lot about dairy cows and saw where the milk they buy in the grocery store comes from. They saw how cows are milked and Schumacher says some of the students learned that “brown cows don’t really give chocolate milk” as they thought they did!

Next the group toured Bill Wingert’s hog farm and asked several questions, learning how and what hogs eat, and also found out where ham, bacon, and other favorite pork products come from.

On the schedule for their next stop was the Harmony Library in Harmony, Minn., where the kids learned about the summer reading program and were fortunate to have Kay Himlie read them a farm story.

Then it was on to the Harmony Veterinary Clinic, where many of the children asked questions about animals and about what the veterinarians do. Schumacher explained “the children were able to see the ‘animal hotel’ and listen to dogs and cats heartbeats,” which they found fascinating.

A stop at the Harmony IGA to see where dairy and meat products are located in the store was passed up as the children were quite muddy from visiting the farms.

The last stop for the day was Preston Equipment and the children still had plenty of energy left to get excited about climbing into a big John Deere tractor and had many questions about all of the equipment available to look at.

Ryan Srsen and Corey Whalen with Preston Equipment gave the children safety tips while showing them each piece of equipment. While the kids gathered around the tractor Srsen reminded them that they need to stay clear of moving tractors and told them that when the lights start flashing the tractor will be moving.

While children took turns sitting on the ATV’s, Whalen made it clear that helmets should be worn whenever riding on an ATV. The kindergarten class enjoyed sitting in and on many other pieces of John Deere equipment and ATV’s.

Many of the children especially enjoyed h .....
