Volunteers from the Central Minnesota Cattleman’s Association and Aitkin High School’s FFA chapter brought some visitors to Rippleside Elementary school on May 16.

The goal of the petting zoo, according to Amanda Forster, was to provide an exposure to farm animals that many kids don’t have otherwise.

The association comes to Rippleside for several events throughout the school year. Its members discuss subjects such as their agricultural careers, farm safety and animal biology. The third grade students have made visits to local apple, cranberry and potato farms on their field trips.

Forster and the association hope to expand the experiences for students in the future, and will continue working with the school to further agricultural education efforts.
