These were as follows: Ranch owner Dave Goss with the help of Cinnamon LaFeaver and daughter Karlie drove the hay wagon with his tractor out into the fields as areas of interest and history were pointed out. New baby calves were among the sights. Another area contained Ms. Goss with her sheep and dogs. Explaining about the care of a lamb from its beginning to adulthood was followed by a demonstration of a working sheep dog. Next Mrs. Roberti held the attention of the students with information about the care of calves from their birth to maturity. Then the students each received a newly branded piece of wood at the brand identification station. Mr. Knight and Mr. Forrest were in charge of the hot branding irons. Along the back fence three poster-type bulletin boards were hung where Ms. Knight and Ms. Pombo informed the listening students abut the many by-products gotten from a cow, (Did you know that the NFL uses 3,000 hides in a season for their footballs?} As students answered questions about the many by-products, they got a marshmellow which has components made from a cow. The last station was where the wonderous mysteries of the egg-producing process in a hen was explained. by Ms. Colberg
