It was not the average Friday on April 21 as the Cloverland Elementary School Cougars were treated to a variety of visitors for the annual Ag Day event.

“I think Ag Day is so important because so many of our students are able to see how much agriculture is in our area,” event coordinator and teacher Tammie Rhoads shared, “and how much we need to take care of it.”

A number of agriculture-related presenters were on the Johnson Avenue campus, from the classrooms to the playground and fields, educating students on all things ag. A total of 33 industry professionals took the time to share information regarding their specific field with the students.

Presenters included everything from those with expertise in bees, quilting, livestock, roping, farming, crop dusting, composting and more.

“One of my favorite parts of the day is the field full of animals brought by individuals and the Sierra 4-H for the children to interact with,” Rhoads said. “It is one of our biggest and in my opinion most important days of the school year.”

Always a popular attraction, the students at Cloverland Elementary enjoyed taking a whirl at dummy roping during the Ag Day festivities.
A variety of livestock, including turkeys, stopped by Cloverland’s Ag Day for students to get up close and personal with at the Friday, April 21 event.
