Fourth graders from almost every school district in San Patricio County learned about agriculture at the county fairgrounds on Wednesday.

It was an event called Ag in the Classroom, and over two days, about 1,000 kids will gather at the fairgrounds in Sinton to learn about agriculture. They will learn about cotton, grain sorghum, beef cattle, and more.

The kids also got the chance to get an up-close look at some very expensive equipment. For many, it was their first time being on a tractor.
