As a local farming community, with over 130 dairy farming families spanning from Gloucester to Kempsey, local community groups Mid North Coast Women in Dairy and the Taree Lions Club have partnered to donate 10 Picasso Cows to local schools across the Manning Valley and regions.
Mid North Coast Women in Dairy and the Taree Lions Club feel passionately about supporting local dairy farmers, celebrating their contribution to the community, and educating the next generation on an industry that’s at the heart of their community.
Dairy Australia’s Picasso Cows program is a fun and engaging curriculum program in which students will learn about the Australian Dairy Industry, the farm to plate process and the health and nutritional benefits of consuming dairy foods, all the while decorating a life-sized fiberglass cow and completing a learning journal over an 8-week period.
Following the 8 Week education program, Taree Lions Club will further support their local dairy community, through auctioning off one very special Picasso Cow to raise money for the local farming region.
How good would a Picasso hand painted cow look in the front garden! And they don’t poo or moo!
