Ag Awareness Day

3Ag Awareness Day

Agriculture Awareness Day, sponsored by the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service, provides an opportunity for fourth grade students to experience a broad range of agricultural activities in a hands-on educational setting. Children visit several “agricultural stations.” Many are equipped with live farm animals including cows, sheep and goats. At each station, a representative from the agricultural field is present to provide a brief overview of farm operations and agricultural life.
