The Laconia FFA Chapter’s annual Day on the Farm was held at Rose-Eld Farms, owned and operated by the Randy and Marilyn Julka and DuWayne and Adeline Belling families.

More than 450 students in second, third and fourth grades from the Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, and Rosendale-Brandon school districts attended.

Learning about all of the opportunities Wisconsin agriculture has to offer was the highlight of the day. The students rotated through stations learning about soils, farm equipment, horses, dairy cattle, wildlife, beef and poultry. Throughout the day, the students also had the opportunity to enjoy a hayride and snack on milk and cheese.
