    On Friday, November 4, a couple of local ladies from their dairy came into Nemaha Central Elementary School to do a "Dairy Talk" with the first grade students. Kristina Haverkamp and Marlene Haverkamp work on their family dairy farms just outside of Seneca.  They talked to all three first grade classrooms about dairy farming.

They read a book that explained what they do on the farm. Then they talked about their own dairy farms. They showed the students a calf bottle, calf replacer (milk), and a bucket. Students learned that calves start drinking from the bottle then they drink from the bucket. Lastly, they talked about eating healthy foods to fuel a strong body. The Haverkamp ladies then gave each child a cheese stick and a go-gurt. Each child also got the book they read aloud as well.  The students really enjoyed the Dairy Talk!
