Resource Description

Utilize this inquiry box with our past virtual field trip video on Beef Production. In this box, you will find materials for the At Home on the Range lesson. Students will learn about rangelands by participating in a hands-on activity of growing their own grass to represent a beef or sheep ranch. Students will visit four stations learning about topics such as land use in Oregon, cattle care and nutrition, nutrition of beef products, land stewardship and grazing. Materials provided include 9oz clear cups, peat pellets and grass seed. Materials will be provided for 30 students.
