Beyond Burger vs Beef
Science is always looking for the next new discovery. One of its newest experiments is trying to recreate a meat product that can be made in a petri dish and not on our grasslands using cattle. Concerns about our ozone being destroyed by methane gas released from grazing animals is only one of the reasons for this new experimentation. Let us engage you in a discussion about the pros and cons of this new experiment.
Home On The Range
San Diego County was a part of the western history of ranching. Once the rolling coastal hills that became the 3rd largest city in California, were covered with grasslands, brush, and grazing cattle. The now technology center of Sorrento Valley was part of the center of the cattle industry in San Diego County by providing railways to transfer the meat commodity up and down the coast, and to and from as far away as Arizona. Allow us to take you back in time and follow the rich history of cattle ranching in San Diego County.
Head 'Em Up & Move 'Em Out!
An interactive lesson about the life of a cowboy/cowgirl out on the range. Students are introduced to the clothing, equipment used, foods, and skills needed to herd the cattle from place to place. Each student will be able to apply for a job on a mock cattle drive as we model what his/her life might have been like living as a cattle herder.
Team building, cooperation, and respect are taught throughout the lesson.
