Learning About and Practicing Milking Cows!

At Edina Daycare, they've been learning all about farm animals! The focus lately has been learning about cows. As a part of this, the kids got to enjoy a station with a cow-milking simulator set-up. The kiddos had so much fun milking the pretend cow and learning fun facts about cows as a part of this unit.

Cow facts

Some facts about cows you can share with your students include but are not limited to:

*Cow stomachs have four different chambers for digesting food--they do not have four stomachs as some rumors state.

*There are over 1 billion cows on the entire planet of Earth.

*Cows are herbivores and only eat vegetation.

*Cows are red/green color blind.

*A cow chews cud (regurgitated, partially digested food) for up to 8 hours each day.

*Dairy cows provide 90% of the world's milk supply.
