Annual Ag Expo teaches the importance of Wyoming ag
Cheyenne – Nearly 720 fourth graders from Laramie County School Districts #1 and #2 gathered at the Archer Complex on Sept. 19-20 for the Laramie County Cow-Belles’ Annual Ag Expo.
Over the course of the two days, students attended a range of presentations from High West Energy, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Laramie County 4-H, among others, on a variety of information including beef byproducts, wheat, weaving, bees and various other animals, as well as an exhibit on working border collies.
“It’s always fun to see the kids learn some new things, and this fits in with the education required on Wyoming for fourth graders in the state,” Laramie County Cow-Belle Michelle Vercelli told the Wyoming Livestock Roundup.
For several decades, the Laramie County Cow-Belles have invited local students to the Ag Expo to learn about agriculture, with a focus on the industry in their home state of Wyoming.
The next Laramie County Cow-Belles’ Ag Expo is tentatively scheduled for September 2024.
