((During the school year, Jon Utin teaches science to sixth graders at Blacksburg Middle School.
But his work- day hasn't always ended when the bell rings.
For the past 30- years, Utin has headed-up a successful after-school program at Virginia Tech that teaches students what you won't find in a textbook.

Once the students and the calf their assigned to get aquatinted, though, the learning and fun begin.

[out q= pretty stubborn.]


This year, 55- students signed up for the program which is offered just once a year.
And while it's exciting it's also hard work.
The program runs for two weeks-- and the students are required to spend at least one hour a day with their calf.
But the students say, with Utin, even the weekends are fun.

Last weekend, the program drew to a close with a final dairy show.
But fifth graders looking forward to the program next year won't be able to take part.
After 30- years, "The Jon Utin Dairy Show" has ended.
Next year, the university will be tearing down the dairy bars to make room for new construction-- so Utin felt the time was right.

For Utin the decision is bittersweet but he does have more than enough memories to carry with him-- considering more than a thousand children have experienced the life of a dairy farmer, first hand. Teresa Hamilton, NEWS 7, Blacksburg. ))
