Today our teacher took us to the Mr. Chang’s farm. When we got there, we saw cows walking around and eating the grass. Mr. Chang let his cows walk freely outside. He even touched their faces and talked to them like a father. Also, Mr. Chang only fed his cows with fresh grass and spring water from nature. He took good care of his cows so he could sell people the best milk. When He milked the cows, he even let us try. It was really exciting to get fresh milk from the cows by myself!
