Fourth-graders flock to Ag Days at Mooseheart
MOOSEHEART – When asked about farming, a kid might picture a man on a tractor in a field. During the Kane County Farm Bureau’s 29th annual Ag Days, 2,000 local fourth-graders are learning there’s a lot more to it.
Held at the Mooseheart Fieldhouse, students rotated through a series of 25 stations to hear and take part in short presentations on agricultural topics. They learned about corn, soybeans, meat and dairy, farm machinery, biotechnology and vermicomposting, or composting with worms.
“It’s very quick, but they pick up a lot of information they can take back to their classrooms and talk about,” said Suzi Myers, KCFB’s agriculture literacy coordinator. “This is a one-shot deal where children can see firsthand how agriculture touches their lives.”
