It was a beautiful day for Lathrop Street Elementary School’s Field Day, recently held at the Montrose High School in Montrose, PA. Among the many stations available to the kids was the “Dairy Station” where Susquehanna County Alternate Dairy Princess, Charlotte Quick, and Ambassador, Ava Hughes, we’re on hand to hand out cheese sticks and teach the kids about how dairy farmers take good care of their calves on the farm. The girls also brought along a 3-week old Red & White calf for the kids to meet.
Since the calf was yet to be named, all the kids suggested names and eventually decided that her name should be “Rosie.” Thanks go out to Ms. Rosenkrans, Lathrop Street Elementary School P.E. teacher, for inviting Dairy Promotion to share in the festivities and to Scott Farms of Franklin Forks, PA, for allowing us to borrow Rosie for the day!
