Animal Crackers
1:00 AM - 1:00 AM

The Cornell University Department of Animal Science is pleased to announce Animal Crackers 2016 "Animal Crackers: Kids are Udderly Moomentous!" on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at Cornell University.  The up-coming program will incorporate both goat and dairy cattle topics for youth ages 9-12 or those with a beginners/intermediate knowledge of the species.  All youth, 4-H and non-4-H, are invited to participate. Adult chaperones are also invited to attend to make Udderly Moomentous a family event! 

Interesting, educational, hands-on activities are planned to make Animal Crackers a memorable teaching event.  Participants will have the opportunity to learn goat or dairy care, biology, or management while having fun in two different learning tracts (goat): beginners and intermediates. There will also be sessions on making ice cream, animal demonstrations, and much, much more!

Cost of the program will be $15 for youth (adult chaperones are free!) and everyone is asked to bring their own lunch. Registration for the event must be done through your local Cornell Cooperative Extension Office and must be completed no later than April 29, 2016.  All groups must have at least one chaperone per species tract.  More information can be found on the Animal Crackers website: http://4h.ansci.cornell.edu/events-2/animal-crackers/topics/. Mark your calendars for one of the most exciting animal science programs of 2016! Contact Susan at 315-539-9251 or smc226@cornell.edu with questions or to register.
