Farming plays a central role in the lives of every American, from the food we eat to the clothes we wear. This week, fourth graders from all across the county got to learn some of the ins and outs of the world of agriculture.

Purdue Extension Montgomery County, the Montgomery County Farm Bureau and the Montgomery County Soil and Water Conservation District teamed up to present their annual Ag Days event. The event, held on Wednesday and Thursday, allowed fourth graders from all three county school districts to visit the 4-H fairgrounds and learn about agriculture from some local farming professionals.

Over the two days, presenters and topics for the students were herding with Tim Curts, horses with Makhalea and Sherry Legg Young, beef with the South Montgomery FFA Chapter, careers with the North Montgomery FFA Chapter, ag trivia with Renee Wiatt, health and ag with Monica Wilhoite and Kelsie Batz, beekeeping with Royce Foster, master gardeners with a group of master gardeners and land measuring with Sina Parks and Adam Beck.

“We’ve had this for a long time. I’m not sure how long,” Sherry Legg Young with the Extension Office said. “Probably since ’97 or so.”
