Earlier this month, the Kansas Pork Association hosted a breakout session at the Kansas Foundation Agriculture in the Classroom one-day conference for educators. During the session, attendees were able to watch a virtual field trip to a pig farm and learn about the program. Teachers were also given the chance to sign up for future virtual field trips.
The conference theme was “Education: Rooted in Agriculture” and was attended by teachers, county farm bureau coordinators and conservation district managers from all over the state.
In addition to the breakout session, KPA was also a lunch sponsor, along with Kansas Cattlewomen and Central National Bank of Salina and Manhattan.
