Land O'Lakes recently matched a grant gift by Farmers Cooperative Elevator Co. of Halstead to the Kansas Learning Center for Health.
In August the cooperative donated more than $10,000 to partly fund the creation of a new exhibit in the museum called "Farm to Family."
This month Land O'Lakes matched that donation with $10,000 to the museum.
“Farm to Family” will be an interactive exhibit intended to teach children of all ages how their food makes its way from a farm to their table. The exhibit is estimated to cost at least $30,000 to construct and install.
Using iPad apps, a video simulator and a miniature field diorama (showing irrigation systems, tractors, sprayers, farm equipment, storage facilities and more), “Farm to Family” will show students how corn, wheat and milk are processed and distributed.
