The Mobile Dairy Classroom Experience (MDCE) is a fun and interactive educational
experience for all ages. It is a fifth wheel trailer that has been modified to fit a milking
jar, a set of pumps, and room to transport two cows and one calf to events and schools
across BC. The program delivers live milking demonstrations to a range of audiences.
During the demonstrations, a presenter describes the process of producing milk,
speaks about the dairy industry and allows the audience to engage in discussion and
questions, while a facilitator demonstrates the milking process. This experience is
designed to mitigate the urban-rural divide, clear misconceptions, and give the
audience an authentic depiction of the dairy industry.
Reporting to the Communications Manager, the MDCE Facilitator will be responsible for
performing the field components of the MDCE program. The Facilitator will organize
and manage the logistics and transportation of cow(s) and the program trailer to
schools and events. The Facilitator is responsible for the care of the cow(s) during
transportation and presentations.
During presentations, while the Presenter outlines the milking process, the Facilitator
will demonstrate the milking procedure. In addition, the Facilitator’s knowledge may be
drawn upon when answering public inquiries during presentations.
The Facilitator must be able to work independently and as part of a team and possess
the ability to speak in front of small audiences. The Facilitator plays a critical role in the
success of the MDCE through educating the general public about the dairy industry.
