When a School Stood for a Calf!

Science Innovations

Indiana: The world is amazed when the news came out that a high school students are working their heart out to help a calf.  Goshen High School is a public high school in Goshen, Indiana, in the United States, where the students have taken a baby calf as a refugee. 

The students at Goshen High School are helping this calf walk. She was born with her feet not fully developed so these students are putting their knowledge of technology to a great use. The students have named her 'Daisy' and are doing their best to treat her.

Daisy is born with hooves that are not fully developed. The deformity makes her unable to walk well. Dr. Emilie Blough, a veterinarian who specializes in large animals who had been treating the calf spread the news in social media asking somebody to offer help. Jen Yoder, an engineering and technology teacher at Goshen High School reached out. Thus the Goshen High School welcomed Daisy the calf with open arms.

Engineering students are working right now to help this little cow walk again. Biology students are trying to find out what caused the deformity. The students are changing this cow’s life for the better, teachers say, and they are falling in love with Daisy along the way.
