WHITLEY COUNTY — More than 400 first graders from the Whitley Consolidated School Corporation, Smith-Green Community School Corporation and Whitko Community School Corporation visited the Whitley County Fairgrounds for Ag Day.

The annual event is organized by the Whitley County Soil and Water Conservation District with the assistance of Farm Bureau Inc., and Cooperative Extension Service.

As the students participate in Ag Day, they learn various facets of agricultural.

Columbia City High School’s FFA Chapter brought several farm animals and discussed them with the students.
