Features of Dairy Farms

This learning sequence encourages students to explore the features of dairy farms, where and how dairy cows are raised to produce milk and how milk gets from the cow to us!

Students examine what dairy farms are like and the important activities located on them, where these activities are located and why. They investigate how places are arranged and used for different purposes on dairy farms.

Students also identify and describe the natural, managed and constructed features of places and describe how dairy farmers care for their farms and cows.

Students explore features of Australian dairy farms using a range of media and they represent these on ‘simple maps’.
