Project by Green County Student Featured in Kentucky Farm Bureau's "Science in Agriculture" Displays

 

Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Green County student, Caton Clark, was among the 12 students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) annual meeting in Louisville.

Caton displayed his science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. His project, “How Does Temperature affect Egg Production?” explored the effects of temperature on egg production by chickens.

He was awarded $125 and a certificate of recognition for his participation at the state level.

The Science in Agriculture program was developed by KFB as a way to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy, and scientific thought.

Kentucky Farm Bureau, with over 478,000 member families statewide, is the state’s largest general farm organization. Approximately 2,000 members attended KFB’s 98th annual meeting in Louisville, November 29 – December 2, to recognize this year’s individual and organizational achievements and adopt policy for 2018.
