We’re putting dairy on the map!
With Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom’s interactive “Grown in Oregon” map, you can see where your milk and dairy foods like cheese, yogurt and ice cream are made, as well as 30 other locally-grown foods.
You can visit a dairy farm today, and you don’t even have to get your shoes dirty. Through a partnership with Discovery Education, this new video explains modern dairy farming, dairy’s journey from farm to school, and the innovations that are helping care for cows and communities.
