Nashville - South Georgia students are learning about an important farming tradition.

Andi Branstetter from the Georgia Dairy Farmers group and Buttercup the Dairy Cow visited with kids at Berrien Primary School in Nashville Wednesday. They teach students about everything from a dairy cow's diet to how milk is made, and how many servings of dairy products people should eat each day.

"It's a way to get back to the farm and back to a hands on experience so they can see with their own eyes how important agriculture is," said Branstetter. 

"So many kids think you just go to the grocery store and pick up a gallon of milk and don't know where its produced, so we're trying to get agriculture awareness out to our students this week," said Mary Alice McGee, Sesquicentennial Committee Member. 

The dairy lesson was part of Berrien County's 150th birthday celebration. The county is celebrating different parts of their heritage every week through May, and this is Agriculture Awareness week.
