Three learning stations run by the Adams County Extension Office, area Farm Bureaus and the Weiser River Cattlemen's Association introduced students to hand wash- ing safety, utilization of beef products, and calv- ing and ranch manage- ment. "We use 100% of a cow," explained Adams County Extension Educator Shanna Hamilton, after a treasure hunt related game helped students identify all of the con- sumer goods produced from cattle. After presenting a calf birthing video, ranchers Pam Schwenkfelder of Cambridge, Dean Dryden of New Meadows, and Justin Florence of Lake Fork answered questions and outlined challeng- es of modern ranching.
