A Peek at Agriculture

School children from all over Box Elder County took trips to the farm as part of Farm Field Days, annual events sponsored by South and North Farm Bureaus and the women’s auxiliary groups.
On the south end of the county, more than 600 third graders from six schools traveled to Tuleview Dairy, owned and operated by the Hardy family.  There, lead around in groups by members of the Box Elder High School FFA, they learned about farm equipment, farm safety, beef production, crop planting, sheep shearing, dairy products and where milk comes from.
At the north end, about 300 first grade students from Century, North Park and Fielding, converged on Howell and the Sorensen Dairy to learn about soil conservation, mother cows and calves, pork production and sheep ranching, as well as participate in “farmer friendly” relay races.
Bear River High School FFA members assisted the youngsters throughout the day.
