Educators from all Tuscarawas County schools were invited to the show arena for breakfast on Thursday at the county fair. Approximately 50 were in attendance for a box breakfast prepared by the Cloverleaf Cafe. Participants also were encouraged to try and win a $400 Apple gift card for their school. All they had to do was milk a cow, and extract the most milk in 1 minute. During the contest, Steve Cronebaugh gave valuable dairy information to the crowd. It was quite a hands on experience for many suit and tie wearing professionals! Rita Lahmers and Michele Carlisle talked to the educators about Farmtastic Agventures, a great hands on classroom experience for grade schoolers. The event was co-sponsored by Farm Bureau, Extension and Farm Service Agency.
