Families can milk “Bessy” the cow, make crafts as a part of Hood Magazine’s Make N’ Take monthly activity and participate in other family friendly activities to be taking place
Since 2008 the Ode family has hosted an open house at their dairy every June in celebration of Dairy Month. “We appreciate the Ode family’s willingness to open up their farm to their neighbors and folks from the surrounding communities,” said Rebecca Christman, Outreach director for Ag United. “It is a great opportunity for people to see firsthand how committed South Dakota Dairy farmers are to their cows and the environment,” added Christman.
The event is sponsored in part by South Dakota Farm Families and Ag United, Midwest Dairy Association and South Dakota soybean farmers and their check-off.
