Beef Lesson in the Classroom

Posted:

Daily farm chores are filling up teacher's lesson plans across the state.

Kindergarten through 2nd grade classes are learning the story of "Little Star.... Raising Our First Calf".
Kathy Tokach is one North Dakota Cattlewoman who spends her day going into various classrooms to read the farm book and teach the farm lesson.
This year, the cattlewomen will reach more than 50 classrooms, and the best part is the schools get to keep the books.

(Kathy Tokach / ND Cattlewomen) "They are all interested in that calf, and a few bring their story about seeing a calf at someone's farm. And I am trying to say I am the person that works there everyday. These are the calves we take care of is the story that we start with at this grade."

The author, Rebecca Long Chaney, will be presenting in Mandan on March 26h to encourage others to tell their beef story. 
A series of books have also been donated to both the Bismarck and Mandan Public Libraries if you are interested in checking them out for your kids.
