They stopped at Nash Farm, On Tapp Dairy Farm, and the St. Catharine Farm, to look into local dairy, produce, and beef farms.
Rick Greenwell took the students around to the different farms around Springfield, ending their trip with Danny Ray Spalding at the St. Catharine Farm. Spalding is the Farm Manager at St. Catharine and told the students the ins and outs of running a beef cattle farm.
Spalding allowed the students onto the farm to check out some of the barns on the property where they hold cattle as they’re growing.
Along with learning the basics of managing the farm, Spalding also shared with the students how the Sisters at St. Catharine have helped the farm over the years and why it is a major part of the Springfield community.
