This year’s 7th Grade Agriculture Days was an experience to remember for about 4,800 Jordan School District students. That’s because for the first time in the event’s history, current and former high school students demonstrated how they found success breaking wild mustangs.
7th Grade Agriculture Days was an opportunity for students to spend two days learning about agriculture and its impacts on their lives. The event brought specialists from 56 different agricultural-related organizations together with business to provide a hands-on educational experience. Students learned about different professions in the ag industry as well as how food makes its way from farms to the dinner table.
This year students were able to see a sheep shearing demonstration, along with a demonstration on how drones now play an important role in growing crops on farms. There were also alpacas, goats, rabbits, pigs, ducks and chickens at the event.
Great job to everyone involved in organizing such an engaging, hands-on event!
