NBC 5's Kyle Aevermann visited the Jackson County Expo as fourth graders got some hands-on experience in the world of agriculture.
From cattle to goats.
There were more than 960 hands on deck.
Organizers say the two day event is an important education tool for all.
They hope the field trip will inspire some of the students to become future farmers.
"Our hope is to show the kids the importance of agriculture in the world because they are growing up to be the young people who make decisions and agriculture is such a big part of it," said Sharon Bateman.
The trip showcases everything from milking a goat to removing a horseshoe.
it's also about the small insects who can have a very big impact.
Students were able to get a close up look at how bugs can both help and destroy crops.
The annual event is sponsored by the Oregon Beef Council.
