Cows need to be milked, horses shoed and crops planted. Just another day on the farm.
Back for the 16th year, the Pell City High School Future Farmers of America sponsors “Kids Day On The Farm,” a two-day event to give all the first-graders in the Pell City system a chance to experience a day in the life of a farmer.
Dry Creek Farms hosts the event, and students from the PCHS FFA club lead the young students through different stations that help introduce animals like horses, mules, pigs, goats and chickens. They also get to watch a farrier shoe horses and climb on board farm equipment and other fun and games.
Laycie Bunt and Paige Siegler, agriculture teachers at Pell City High School, as well as FFA advisors, organize the event.
