Farm bureau holds Annual Ag Day in the Park

Over 480 4th Grade students from Anahuac

CHAMBERS COUNTY— Chambers County Farm Bureau held their annual Ag Day in the Park on, May 15. Over 480 4th Grade students from Anahuac, Barbers Hill and East Chambers Schools attended this unique program.
Ag Day in the Park is a portion of Texas Farm Bureau’s Ag In The Classroom curriculum and the Planet Ag exhibit seen across the state at county fairs and major livestock shows such as Houston, Fort Worth and San Antonio.
The Chambers County Farm Bureau Board of Directors puts together a group of exhibitors who will take time out of their busy schedules to visit with the kids about Agriculture. This year we had the following exhibits on display:
Mr. & Mrs. James Gentz – longhorns; Mr. Moe Way – Texas Agriculture Extension; Service – Beaumont station; Mr. Gary Nelson – rice milling; Mr. Ricky Wolfe – crayfish farming; Mr. Bob Kahla & Mr. Luke Clement – cutting horse demonstrations; Mr. Jonathan Haralson – Texas Farm Bureau Ag Trailer display; Mr. Buddy Devillier, Mr. David Murrell and Mr. David Edwards – all providing livestock for the kids to view and pet.
Many other wonderful people in the community help to make this possible.
A big thanks to the East Chambers Ag Department. They provided 30+ youth to help us move the animals, panels, pens, and children throughout the day. Also the Noon Optimist Club of Winnie – they assisted in preparing hamburgers for all of the children, workers and exhibitors.
Mr. Bruce Hinds graciously provided cattle for the cutting horses and Mr. Larry Devillier, Sr. helped with the cutting demonstration. Winnie Stowell EMS was also on hand for the entire day and we certainly appreciate them coming out.
Thanks as well to Chambers County Farm Bureau Board of Directors, Agents and Administrative Assistants for all being on hand and assisting.
