Dairy Math

Grades: Grades 2-4

Subject Area: Math, STEM, Health

Made Possible By: American Dairy Association North East (ADANE)

As with running any business, numbers are top of mind for dairy farmers as they calculate how much feed their herd will need to stay healthy, how many gallons of milk they will provide to school systems, restaurants, and home consumers, how much energy they can save by using technology effectively, and more. Challenge students to solve math problems related to cow care and dairy farm sustainability, and then use USDA MyPlate guidelines for planning healthy meals.
