McHenry County 3rd- and 4th-graders learn about farming at Ag Expo
By NORTHWEST HERALD
Third- and fourth-graders spent some time among cows, piglets, baby chicks and horses while visiting the McHenry County Farm Bureau’s Ag Expo this week.
Students moved from station to station at the McHenry County Fairgrounds as they learned about dairy farms; soybean consumption; eggs and chickens; the history of farming; beekeeping and honey production; and other agricultural subjects.
The hands-on learning experience put kids face-to-face with goats, pigs, chickens and even real-life farmers.
