(Lander, Wyo.) – The Lander Valley Cattlewomen hosted, along with other agencies and individuals, an agriculture day at the Lander rodeo grounds.

In the morning, third-graders from Ethete, Fort Washakie, Dubois and Cornerstone Christian Academy trecked through different stations set up throughout the grounds. They got to ride horses, learn about cattle, water, rabbits and other topics. In the afternoon, students from Lander and Jeffrey City attended.

Lander FFA students worked as support staff for the event.
