Clinton 4th Graders At DeWitt County Museum For Annual Ag Day

The DeWitt County Museum was the host Friday for the annual Ag Day put on by the DeWitt County Farm Bureau.


Ag Day brings together area implement dealers to showcase the latest in agriculture equipment and show Clinton Elementary fourth grade students what farming was like before advancements in technology allowed for more efficient farming. Executive Director of the DeWitt County Museum, Joey Woolridge says it is can be a real eye-opener for the students.



Director of the DeWitt County Farm Bureau Janel Baum-Thomas says Ag Day has become more than just a display of modern ag equipment and has become a more complete learning experience about agriculture.



Woolridge says Ag Day is a long-standing tradition that many people that haven't been back to the Homestead in some time will recall their earliest memories of the DeWitt County landmark as being the ag day event they attended in grade school.
