Two hundred and fifty third-graders dug into agriculture during the 2017 Barbour County Ag Day March 17. Students learned about tractors, soil, cotton, horses, goats, water systems, fighting wildfires and more. Barbour County Young Farmers and the local Extension office hosted the event at Eufaula High School.
Members of the Ariton High School FFA, along with Alfa Insurance and the Dale County Farmers Federation’s Women’s Leadership Committee, sponsored a booth at Ariton High Farm Day March 23 during National Ag Week. The booth provided ag career information for older students and coloring books for younger students.
