Area fifth grade students visited the West End Dairy Farm in Sterling on Thursday, Sept. 22, to learn about how a dairy farm operates. Students were divided into eight separate stations where they learned about the feeding of cattle, ground water treatment, veterinary services and other aspects of farming cattle. The event was hosted by the Arenac Conservation District.
