Electronic Field Trip to a Beef Cattle Farm

The Goggin family has owned and operated a beef cattle farm in Boyle County for three generations. During this one-hour visit, family members show us around the farm and answer questions like these:

  • Why do they raise beef cattle?
  • What role does the veterinarian play in the operation?
  • How is artificial insemination used?
  • How do cows digest grass?
  • What’s a day on the farm like for kids?

Note: The program shows real-life video of the intestines and digestive system of a cow.
