Hundreds of local students are learning a thing or two about how cattle goes from the farm, to your fork.
For the past two days, local fourth grade students have been taking field trips to F. McClintock's Restaurant in Shell Beach to learn about the life cycle of cattle. They're taken through five stations, learning everything about cows themselves to beef byproducts.
"Something that I learned that was pretty creepy is that gum is actually made from gelatin, and gelatin is made from cow hooves," said Oceanview Elementary student, Yvette Fiorentino.
F. McClintock's and the San Luis Obispo County Cattle Women's Association have been hosting the field trip for six years.
