Kids learn about farm life through McDonald's foods

The college students erected six separate stations for the kids to peruse, each one teaching about a different component of the standard "Happy Meal." From the wheat used in buns to the importance of Montana's beef in the production of burger patties, Montana's agricultural goods contribute mightily to the tasty foods.
The event served as a means for the agricultural students, already steeped in farm life, to teach their younger counterparts about the importance of farming. JoLynn Miller, a graduate teaching assistant, explained that the program "helped the youth understand where their food comes from and how connected we all are to agriculture." "Even in Montana," Miller asserted, "kids say they think milk comes from the grocery store."
At the day's conclusion, the students walked away with their goody bags and a newly ignited interest in farm life. Perhaps the next lesson will involve rides on John Deere tractors.
