Dairy farms hire veterinarians to find which cows are pregnant. Here Dr. Rob Farruggio of Wisconsin ultrasounds cows and through his binoculars sees the fetus of a baby cow. As he tours the farm he explains that happy cows housed in comfortable barns produce more milk. Dairy farmer Jordan Matthews of Rosy-Lane Holsteins says wireless technology is also helping manage the herd, keeping animals healthy, and helping farmers track milk production.

Facilitates: Marketing Your Ag Program
Best thing about CoP:
I truly enjoy being able to grab an idea from another teacher to implement in my classroom. As an early-career teacher, CoP has definitely saved me more than once! I also love to read the Day in the Life blogs to get an insight into other ag programs.
Why she volunteered: As an FFA member and ag student Kellie was taught the importance of living to serve, and this is her way to give back to the ag education community.
Resource in your community on CoP you would like to highlight: The PR resources from MAAE are phenomenal and filled with great and easy ideas to promote your ag program!
Communities of Practice is a professional networking site for agricultural educators managed by the National Association of Agricultural Educators. Its purpose is to create a common place for anyone who is interested in agricultural education to share ideas and resources.
