Green Country Kids Experience Slice Of Farm Life

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Hundreds of Green Country students got to be farm hands today at "Kids, Kows and More."

It is a traveling program hosted by Southwest Dairy Farmers.

The program brought animals and farmers to the fairgrounds to teach students how agriculture provides food, clothing and shelter.

"Today we're telling them about cotton, how cotton plant grows, and how it's processed to become the blue jeans they're wearing or other clothing items, t-shirts and so forth," OSU Extension Director Charlotte Richert.

Nine hundred third- and fourth-graders also saw where milk comes from and saw a sheep being sheared.
