Classrooms Can Edopt a Cow

  I’ve written about Alabama dairy farmer Will Gilmer before. He takes a unique approach to connect with consumers and tries to help them understand life on a farm with unique songs, such as the YouTube hit "Water n Poo" that dealt with nutrient management.

Now, he’s developed a new program to edopt one of his cows. Will lets kids, classrooms, or other groups edopt a cow and he’ll send you a photo of her. You can then follow how much milk she produces each month and keep up to date on your edopted cow. Genius!

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s Will’s Water n Poo music video:
