Today, hundreds of 5th graders from Pulaski County learned about agriculture and what it takes to run a farm. They gathered at the New River Valley Fairgrounds in Dublin. Taking part in what's become known as "Ag Day"
14 different stations with real farmers speaking about real life. Touching the milk cow, letting her know you're about to get to work.
Bees and beekeepers had kids a little cautious. Parents, teachers and farmers agreed, plenty of kids have no idea how milk, meat and eggs actually end up at the grocery store. Laura Flory is a dairy farmer. She said, "I am amazed at how little, not even just children, but adults also seem to know alot less where their food comes from."
"Ag Day" is now in it's 8th year and was put on by the Pulaski County Farm Bureau and the Future Farmers of America.
