Taking the temperature of milk for cheese

Taking the temperature of milk for cheese

In the past few weeks, the Agriculture and Nutrition class has been focusing on some new, hands-on skills.  The residents practiced how to make cheese and chorizo in a sanitary fashion.

They also learned how to safely hold down a cow and give vaccinations.

The young women report that these activities are the highlights of the classes- a fun and practical way to utilize some of the classroom agriculture and nutrition information they learn every week.
