FACE Cymru and the National Botanic Garden of Wales have a produced a resource to support a visit to a dairy farm. It suggests activities and discussions that might be carried out before, during or after a visit by Key Stages 2-4, and shows links to the Welsh Skills Framework and Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.
Please take a few minutes to complete our survey here, and you could win a free farm visit for your class.

Every animal naturally carries a range of micro-organisms, and some of these can be transferred to people, where they can cause disease.
The new Code of Practice explains how farmers and teachers can reduce the risk of disease resulting from contact with animals. See www.face-online.org.uk/codeofpractice.
