Thousands of third graders descended upon the Solano County Fairgrounds on Tuesday for the 15th annual Youth Ag Day.
The Solano County students had a day filled with hands-on experience with all-things agriculture, including livestock, plants, bugs and even composting and butter churning, among other things.
“Part of our mission is agriculture educations and third grade is a great age group,” fairgrounds General Manager Stephen Pierce said. “They are excited and it’s a good time to plant the seeds in them to explore a career in agriculture if they want to.”
