Members of the Young Farmer and the Cattlemen go to the classes and present information about crops and livestock that are produced in Morgan County.
They learn Prada Bag Women that their basic food comes from farming and ranching, not just from the supermarket.
They are asked what kinds of food they get from dairy cows, to guess what animal a set of products come from, to guess how many loaves of bread can be made from a bushel of wheat and other questions to get them thinking.
In part, this education prepares them to understand what they see at the stock show.
(A dairy cow produces about eight gallons of milk a day. Seventy five cookies can be made with the sugar from one sugar beet. A bushel of wheat can make enough bread for 730 sandwiches. A brown egg is no more nutritious than a white egg.)
Students are told that agriculture is "cultivating the soil, producing crops and raising livestock."
The idea is to let the public know the vital role producers play in producing wholesome, safe food to consumers, and to help people consider careers in agriculture.
The students learn about dairy products, beef products, sheep products, wheat, corn, sugar beets and eggs.
from bread made from a bushel of wheat and whether a brown egg is more nutritious than a white egg, plus a number of other things.
First the children take a pre test before they learn about the agriculture in Morgan County. Later, they take a final test to show how much they have learned, and it always shows a big increase in knowledge. In the latest test, the students scored an average of 51 percent before learning about agriculture and attending the stock show, and 79 percent afterward.
All of this is followed by a trip to the National Western Stock Show, which is funded by the Young Farmers and the Cattlemen.
The Agriculture Council of America decided the theme this year was "Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed".

They also learn that each bushel of wheat contains about 1 million kernels, and that is enough to make about 70 loaves of white bread or 95 loaves of whole wheat bread.
In the test, students are asked how much milk a dairy cow produces each day, how many cookies can be made from one sugar beet, how many sandwiches can be made Prada Cahier Bag Velvet
They also learn that some products can be surprising. For instance, they learn that gelatin products are made with a substance from cattle called collagen. They learn that soap, tape, paint, cosmetics, socks, sweaters, tennis balls and hand lotion often have byproducts from sheep. They learn that corn is food for humans and animals, and can be used in Prada Bags And Prices

Local producers educate kids on ag
Colorado Ag Day, which is held during National Ag Week, and the main purpose of the celebration is to educate people about where their food and fiber comes from.
Working in tandem with the Fort Morgan Young Farmers and the Morgan County Cattlemen's Association, the extension brings a whole curriculum to the classrooms of third grade students each year just before the National Western Stock Show.
Members of those groups help act as chaperones of the kids during the stock show, and pay for the transportation to Denver. They are on hand to answer questions the kids may ask.

Morgan County producers realized years ago that the children of the county did not really know any more about agriculture than urban children, and set out to educate them, said Morgan County Extension Agent Marlin Eisenach.
