The rain might have been pouring down, but that didn’t stop hundreds of Solano County school children from pouring into the Solano County Fairgrounds on Tuesday for Youth Ag Day.
Just about everything you would associate with farm life was there to be explored, including livestock, soil and water information, butter churning, and even branding. The fairgrounds work in conjunction with dozens of agricultural organizations and groups to put on the annual event for third graders.
There was also sheep herding, but the real “herding” prizes had to go to the teachers, parents, and aids that managed to keep all the kids in their group together amid the excitement and crowds. A “Lost and Found” booth was ready if problems arose, but by mid-morning a volunteer said there had been no issues.
