On Friday, 15 May 2015, Jen Crook and Grant Jones-Wiebe took Cardboard Cow to the third annual Agventures! Day!. It is a coordinated effort with some of the primary players being the Tulare County Farm Bureau, the UC Cooperative Extension Tulare Office, and the International Agri-Center.

Cardboard Cow, with colleagues, cow bones, animal models, and veterinary tools paid a visit to the Fresno Farm Day, Friday 20 March, 2015.
The third-graders of Kings County celebrated Farm Day at the Hanford Fair Grounds with hands on exhibits of an agricultural nature. On Thursday, 12 March, 2015, at our stop, children were given a four minute introduction to a Veterinary student’s life as it relates to cattle. Then, each student had the opportunity to: listen to their own heartbeat, touch cow bones, and look at models of animals.
Jen Crook and Grant Jones-Wiebe brought Cardboard Cow with them to Meadow Lane Elementary School today.Â We had fun!Â In our routine, we ask them, “How does a doctor know what’s wrong with you?”Â They say things like, “X-rays, temperature.”Â We’re looking for, “You can tell the doctor.”
Then we ask, “When you ask a cow what’s wrong with her, what does she say?”Â All answer, “MOOOOO!”Â We respond, “What does that mean?”Â Children shrug.Â Today Jen said, “Could mean, ‘Hey, I like your shoes!’ or ‘Nice haircut!'”
Today, Cardboard Cow visited the Fresno County Farm Day, with Jen Crook, Arianna “Auggie” Villarreal, and Grant Jones-Wiebe.
Thank you for coming, students and for exploring life through the eyes of a veterinarian.
Teachers and mentors, we hope to see you all next year!
