RESOURCES ON DAIRY COWS

Here we have a great selection of films for students of all ages and a Power Point for primary pupils. They consider the different ways of farming dairy cows and what might be best for the welfare of the cow.

Primary resources

Power Point

Our Power Point Presentation is easy to use and looks at dairy cows and the ways that we farm them. It opens discussion around the benefits of higher welfare farming and what role we play. It is aimed for children aged 7-11 (KS2) but can easily be adapted for younger ones. The Power Point is designed to be interactive, there are questions throughout where you can pause to discuss. You might think of other things you would like to talk about as well.
