    Students at Liberty Elementary decided to bring back the stylish “milk mustache” in celebration of World School Milk Day on Sept. 25.
    Students gathered outside not only to learn all about the milk they drink each day, but to see exactly where it comes from.
    Greg Goode, a Casey County dairy farmer, brought two of his dairy calves for students to pet on Wednesday.
    Despite the fact that Casey County is a mostly rural area, Goode said a lot of kids are still too far removed from the farms where their food and dairy products come from.
