Science Week 2021 - Friday

The Festival of Farming and Food

Kid’s corner: Facts about cows, milk and grass - Friday November 12th | 11am – 12 noon

Have you ever wondered where your glass of milk or the butter on your bread comes from? Teagasc and VistaMilk SFI Research Centre scientists answer kids’ questions all about cows, milk and grass during this fun interactive session.

Questions like, “Why is milk white if grass is green?” and “How do you know if a cow is healthy?” and many more. During this session kids in the classroom also got a chance to ask the scientists featured in the film more of their own questions.

The session was moderated by TV and radio broadcaster Jonathan McCrea and featured Niamh Field, Katie Sugrue, Fionnuala McDermott, Chris Heffernan and Mark Timlin, Teagasc.
