During state Ag Month, several agriculture groups across the state put together a virtual dairy tour for four 5th grade classes from Williamsburg, Leon and Norton. Students "travelled" virtually to Steve Strickler's dairy farm in Iola, Kan. to learn the ins and outs of a dairy farm. Be sure to check out the dairy lesson plans to accompany this tour!
Learn the inspiration behind the winner's bookmarks, what agriculture means to them and why it's important.
