Fun with Fox 13 at 7th Grade Agriculture Days

It was an experience to remember for thousands of Jordan School District students at this year’s 7th Grade Agriculture Day and Fox 13 got in on the fun. Morning show reporter Rich Bonaduce and photographer Doug Eldredge captured memorable moments with students and some of the animals making an appearance at the event held at the Utah State University Bastian Agricultural Center.

7th Grade Agriculture Days is an opportunity for students to spend two days learning about agriculture and its impacts on their lives. The event brings specialists from dozens of 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.

Great job to everyone involved in organizing such an engaging, hands-on event!
