The Ohio Livestock Coalition is sponsoring “For Your InFARMation” a new, free online resource for third-grade students to learn where food comes from and the important role agriculture plays in Ohio’s economy. A downloadable teacher’s guide of lessons matched to Ohio Department of Education standards, ready-to-use student worksheets and an eight-page student guide are included.
