The Ohio Beef Council aims to provide resources for teachers in order to expand students’ ability to learn about beef and agriculture in the classroom.
Take your class on a virtual field trip to an Ohio Beef Farm from the comfort of your own classroom! This one-of-a-kind learning experience, developed for middle school and high school students, will turn Ohio classrooms into virtual beef farms through the use of Zoom video conferencing technology. With the click of a mouse, students will be guided by an Ohio beef farmer as they're transported to fields, visit barns, view animals live and learn about how food is grown in Ohio and see what a beef farmer does each day to care for their cattle. They’ll even be able to chat with a farmer during a live Q&A session.
Join the Ohio Beef Council and Mr. Craig Corry on his beef farm just outside of Dayton, Ohio. On this past virtual farm tour, you'll learn about what it takes to care for cattle all year, the beef life cycle and what cattle eat.
Six field trips will be held in October and early November 2019. While the trips will focus on beef production for food science and high school agriculture classrooms, elementary and middle/high school classes are welcome to join. Each trip is also recorded so that classrooms not able to participate in live virtual field trips can watch a trip on-demand.
