McConnell Air Force School Tour

Last week the McConnell Air Force 4-H kids came out for a tour. 

It was a great bunch of kiddos.
Since it was a large group we divided up into 2 groups. The groups then went to 2 different stations. One was all about soil conservation and how we as farmers take care of the land we farm. Thank you to Dana and Mark for doing such a great job with this! They even brought out a rain simulator that shows how the soil is affected when it rains on different crops. 

The second group went to the milk barn where the milkman talked about how we take care of the ladies. 
He showed them 5 of the ingredients that goes into their feed.

He showed the kids the milking equipment used to milk the cows and how it feels when the milkers are on them. Some of the kiddos were even brave enough to milk one of the cows.

The milk truck came at just the right time to show the kiddos how the milk gets from the farm to the big milk truck. He also explained about how it would eventually arrive to stores.
Roger did such a great job at explaining everything to the kids.

We always finish off every tour with a sticker that says "I met a dairy farmer", chocolate chip cookies and fresh milk of course.

Everyone goes home with goody bags filled with fun things. We had a great morning with this group. Thank you for coming and we hope to see you all again next year!

Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream

It has been warming up around here lately so the ice cream has started to come out of the freezer a lot. One of the favorite things we love to put on vanilla ice cream is homemade chocolate sauce. So I thought I would share the recipe that I always make so you can try it. It is super easy to make it just takes a little time. 
Here are the ingredients you are going to need.
In a saucepan put 1/4 cup butter, 8 Tablespoons of baking cocoa, 2 cups sugar and 1 1/2 cups of milk.
Stir it all together and bring it to a boil.
Then you let it boil and boil.......
and boil until it gets to 220 degrees. It will take about 20-25 minutes It will be a jelly like consistency. Remove from heat and stir in one teaspoon of vanilla.
Cool slightly, drizzle and enjoy!
