Wednesday and Thursday: Dairy Goat/Cattle Project

Dairy Cattle/Goat Project
Directions: Each of you will choose a dairy cattle or goat breed to create a poster to share with the class.  Any pictures on the poster need to be printed out in color, or drawn with color.  All words on the poster must be typed out or written neatly with permanent marker.  Anything that is being glued on the poster needs to have backing paper (construction paper).  You will be sharing these with the class so make sure the words and pictures are big enough for everyone to see!!
You will need to include the following information on your poster:
Title: you can simply put the name of your breed, or come up with something creative!
A picture of the animal you chose (make sure you have the correct picture for your breed)
What is the purpose of your animal? (think of food, fiber, work, and look on the internet for other uses too!) I would like at least 5 different uses of your animal, and if you put more, it will be extra credit J
A picture that goes with each purpose. For example: if the purpose of your animal is meat, you could put a picture of a steak.  You will have a total of 5 pictures.
Do we raise this animal in Montana?
If we do raise this animal in Montana, where in the state is it raised? Include a picture of the county/town/region.                                                              
Where did your animal originate?
A picture of where your animal originated
On average, how much does a full grown cow and bull weigh?  For goats it would be a full grown boar and doe.
On average, how much milk does your animal produce each day/month/year?  Whichever one you can find…if you can find all three that’s great too!
An interesting fact that you found while researching about your dairy cattle/goat breed!

** You will be graded on neatness, spelling/grammar/punctuation, and each requirement above!
