Let’s Explore Sustainability

This is a unit with six sequences about Australian dairy farmers who do lots of things to care for the environment and maintain healthy farms and healthy cows.

Students will:

* discover the processes dairy farmers use to ensure the growth and survival of their animals and pastures;
* investigate and explore new and existing practices used on Australian dairy farms to care for the environment, sustainably manage resources, maintain healthy farms and healthy cows;
* investigate how dairy farmers address competing considerations, including sustainability in the management of the farm and its resources;
* explore technologies, tools, equipment, procedures and systems used on dairy farms to raise cows, produce milk and maintain healthy farms;
* explore the ways dairy farmers might manage climate variability on dairy farms;
* use and apply concepts and ideas about how Australian dairy farms care for the environment, sustainably manage resources, maintain healthy farms and healthy cows;
* design and deliver a presentation to give dairy farming an update and communicate new ideas and innovations used in sustainable dairy farming in changing times;
* reflect and evaluate what students know about how Australian dairy farms care for the environment, sustainably manage resources, maintain healthy farms and healthy cows.
