WOODBURY — Nonnewaug High School’s education farm is growing one calf at a time. On Oct. 22, the agriculture program gained a new addition to its pasture. Lexie, one of the five cows held here on campus, gave birth to the newest calf on the property, A1, a little bull calf.  

A1 will be cared for by the ag production classes, as well as agriscience teacher Kathleen Gorman. The ag program’s new addition will only be on the farm until the weaning age.

While A1 will be leaving the education farm in coming weeks, the pasture will gain another member as the winter months start to roll in, welcoming Carnation from the large lab. Carnation has been housed in the large animal lab as she underwent a procedure.
