The first-, second- and third-grade classes at S.W. Snowden School enjoyed a wonderful day at Kirkman Farm in Cove City recently. Students fed goats and chickens as well as observed behaviors of pigs, sheep, llamas, donkeys, cows and horses. They milked “Milly Moo,” a fake cow, and shook cream in a container to make butter. SWS students also went for a hayride around the farm, where they saw more cows, ostriches and emus. The SWS students had a wonderful time, learning so many things about how the animals behave, eat and survive on a farm. (Submitted photo/Beaufort County Schools)
