SWCD Hosts 23rd Farm Fair        

The Daviess County SWCD hosted its 23rd annual Fourth Grade Farm Fair on September 6, 2019 at the 4H fairgrounds in Washington. This year we had another large group - 398 students were accompanied by 42 teachers and parents as they all moved through a series of 18 learning stations. Local and area experts taught the students about crops and livestock grown and raised here in Daviess County, as well as other topics such as ATV safety, beekeeping, forestry, and wildlife. Most of our dedicated volunteers have been a part of the Farm Fair for many years! Those attending the Farm Fair also enjoyed a special demonstration on dog obedience and agility, given by Andrea Bauer of A-1 K-9. She also volunteers with the local 4H dog club.

Each year, the Farm Fair relies on the hard work of many volunteers, and also the support from several organizations. This annual event would not be possible without them! The Daviess County SWCD would like to thank the following for their continued support of the Farm Fair: All of the presenters, Purdue Extension, Farm Bureau Inc., Prairie Farms, Hoefling Truck & Tractor, Washington Parks & Recreation Department, the City of Washington, Perdue Farms, GPC, Kenny Swartzentruber, supervisors and staff of the Daviess County SWCD, Warrick County SWCD, staff of the Daviess/Martin NRCS and FSA, and volunteers from our community. A big thank you to Steve Osha Photography for all the great photos!
