Our Visit to the McGiven Farm
We had a morning visit
with Andrew and Jenny
to see their dairy farm.
The cows came to welcome us.
Off to morning tea.
Andrew talked to us about maize.
We got to touch and smell the maize.
We saw the boss of the cows - Mr Bull.
What huge tyres!
What is a Calf Cafe?
A feeder for the calves.
The Calf Cafe can feed 50 calves at a time.
Who are they patting?
The big vat holds the milk ready
for the tanker to collect.
The little vat holds the colostrum for the calves.
The cups to milk the cows.
Down inside the milking bay.
That's a pretty strong hose. Hold on!
Wow! a calf motel
Where they keep the cows and calves
for birthing and nursing.
That's a pretty big tractor!
Take a look at us . . .
Time to make our way back.
Clean those muddy boots before we leave.
Thanks Andrew and Jenny from Room 1.

During the coldest time of the year a small cluster of stars appear in the Eastern sky
Matariki star cluster
marking the beginning of the M
ori New Year.
This is a time for coming together with wh
nau (family) to think about the past year, and plan for the future.
We shared stories and sung waiata.
