Some elementary school kids in south Minneapolis got some real show-and-tell this morning. FFA high school kids from the Morris area brought real farm animals to Risen Christ Catholic School. The idea was to teach city kids where their food comes from, and the big grills were fired up.
Some kids in the 4-H program and the FFA are showing up to the county fairs with smaller animals than years past due to the record breaking temperatures in July. Philip Clark, whose family has won ribbons in the swine competition Carver County Fair, can attest to the fact that the blue ribbon is a badge of honor.
