The goal of Breakfast on the Farm was to offer the opportunity for the public to experience how farmers care for their animals, how we produce wholesome and safe food and how we care for the land. The tour included opportunities to our family, meet other farmers and agriculture specialists. Our guests learned about bio-security, animal well-being, grain bin safety, water quality and more! . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Henricks & Krieger Dairy in Fulton County.

Other educational stations allowed families to learn about cow nutrition, milk quality & safety, and nutrient management. There were also children’s activities and the opportunity to interact with commodity groups. We truly believe we accomplished our goal and offered an educational, fun filled day for many families and individuals who visited our farm. . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Henricks & Krieger Dairy in Fulton County.
