UNL Extension held the fourth annual Day on the Farm for 80 Jefferson Intermediate School fourth grade students.
This annual program helps students understand where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture to both them personally and to the economic success of the state.
They also learn about the many careers available in agriculture and agriculture related fields. The program was made possible by the following sponsors: Greg and Melissa Schultis, Knobel Farms, Inc. Tetra Micronutrients, Westin (Fairbury) Foods, Oregon Trail Equipment, Dennis Zabel, Livingston Enterprises, Jefferson County Farm Bureau, Nebraska Soy Bean Association and the Nebraska Dairy Council. Local producers assisting by bringing in livestock were Brian Bauer, Dennis Trager and Peggy Immink.
