As reported on the 5th October, the CCRI is running a free ESRC Festival event at Asda in Gloucester on Monday 6th November.
The event is called ‘From Moo to You’ and will take you through an interactive journey to show how our milk gets from farm to shop.
A life-sized cardboard cow will also be in attendance and we are running a competition on Twitter – ‘Name the cardboard cow’!
Anyone is eligible to enter, but in order to do so you need to be:
1. Following the CCRI on Twitter
2. Retweet the picture using hashtags #moo2u and #esrcfestival
3. Comment the name in the reply
Entries will be judged by the CCRI team and a winner will be announced and contacted through Twitter on the 25th October 2017.
‘From Moo to You’ is aimed at the general public and is open to all ages. The stall is open for the public to visit at anytime between 10am and 2pm, when our researchers will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how social science plays a key role in understanding and responding to dairy farming issues, such as supply and price volatility.
The ESRC Festival of Social Science 2017 takes place across the UK between 4th and 11th November across the UK and offers a fascinating insight into some of the country’s leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives – both now and in the future.
