More than 550 elementary students filed through Otto Dairy in Milladore on May 4, part of the local FFA chapter’s Food for American program.
Students from Jefferson, Kennedy, Roosevelt and St. Stevens elementary schools learned about the different aspects of the agricultural industry, from dairy production, how cranberries are grown, machinery safety, and the care of chicken and horses.
More than 30 members of the Stevens Point FFA Chapter help guide the students in groups, demonstrating how farmers provide food for the public.
The Stevens Point FFA Chapter holds regular events to encourage future farmers and others interested in agriculture.
