Farming for fourth-graders

Elementary students take turns petting sleepy piglets during an agriculture education field day.

FRANKLIN, Ind. — In an effort to reach the youth in their community and teach them about the agriculture industry, farmers and ag representatives in Johnson County have worked together for several years to hold Fourth Grade Agriculture Days.

The field day shows students about the livestock industry, as well as the different commodity groups that make up the agriculture sector through demonstrations, and provides the chance to pet animals, including pigs, sheep, goats and beef and dairy cattle.
