Local students learn agriculture out of the classroom

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

About 300 local students learned about agriculture at the Fust Farm in Wausau on Thursday.

The students were all D.C. Everest district fourth-graders who had the chance to see animals and learn about the many things that happen on the farm.

Organizers said the 30-year-old tradition continues an essential part of their studies.

"For our fourth graders its part of their education about Wisconsin and about farming and agriculture and where their food comes from, for our high school kids, it's a great leadership activity," said John Glynn.

Nearly 50 D.C. Everest High School seniors helped teach the younger students about animals, dairy and even took them on a hay ride.
