Ag fair gives closeup view of agriculture
Maddie Harreld, a freshman at Stewartville High School in her first year in FFA, left, holds a chicken for a group of fascinated 4-year-old preschoolers from the Central Education Center at the SHS Ag Fair on Wednesday morning, Feb. 26.

Maddie said the Ag Fair is special because it gives children a chance to learn about agriculture at a very young age. I think its fun to have the kids come and to get them started early, she said.

Maddie's brother, Isaac, a senior at SHS, is the vice president of the school's FFA chapter and a leader of the chapter's poultry team who has shared his fondness for chickens with his younger sister.
