Francis Pedeglorio, 9, liked the cows. His Annie Pennycook classmate, Avery Pagtakhan, 8, preferred the pigs.
“They’re cute and nice,” Pagtakhan said about the pigs.
The Vallejo boys were among the 3,284 third-graders – representing 138 classrooms from 47 schools – who attended the 17th annual Youth Ag Day on Tuesday at the Solano County Fairgrounds. There were 39 presenters.
For some of the children, it was the first time they had seen farm animals up close, and that fact was not lost on Allen Clayborn of Vallejo, who was one of the chaperones for his nephew’s Highland Elementary class.
