everything but the moo

Author: Kristy

Steaks, hamburgers and pot roast…when most students start thinking about what comes from a cow, these probably come to mind fairly easily. Its probably fairly safe to say that most would also tell you that milk, and maybe even leather come from cows.

But what if you gave them the following list:






How many of the items above would most students recognize as coming from a cow? Probably not many, if any at all. But the truth is, all of the products listed above can have cattle by-products in them.

As promised, here is the fact sheet showing at least some of the products made from cattle and where they come from. (This compliments the post from last week on “Everything but the Baaa…” and will be followed by one more on “Everything but the Oink….”!) It is a great visual for students to start learning about just how much agriculture impacts their daily lives through more than just the food on their plates and illustrates how we really do use everything but the moooo! Listed below are links to the PDF of the sheet shown above as well as a PDF of a worksheet on Products from Cows and the corresponding Answer Key. We hope that you find these resources helpful!
