A wise man once said you can’t take a bad picture of a pig. The same holds true for kids, too, and when you have kids and pigs together, “Oh my!”

Each spring,  650 third grade students from schools in Washington, Dodge, Saunders and Douglas counties attended the Ag Literacy Festival at the Washington County Fairgrounds. In addition to pigs and pork, the students attended presentations on dairy and beef cattle, corn and soy bean production and products, and agriculture technology.
