Common Core goes ‘moo’ at Callison – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Snickers was a treat in so many ways Wednesday at Callison Elementary in Vacaville.

Candy? No. A bovid ruminant, commonly called a cow, yes.

And there she was, doe-eyed with black and white markings, eating hay and chewing her cud, a 1,200-pound lesson, on four hooves, on science, health and food literacy.

The 5-year-old Holstein, from a dairy ranch in Galt, Snickers was the natural center of attention while standing in her mobile trailer parked on the asphalt playground at the Vanden Road campus.
