Some local 3rd Graders got a real life lesson in farm living today.

Students from Corpus Christi, Banquete and Drisacoll school districts were at the Richard M. Borchard Fairgrounds in Robstown today to learn everything from how cows produce milk to where chickens come from, even a lesson the importance of water conservation.

The event, known as Ag Awareness Day, is hosted by Texas Agrilife Extension and the Texas farm Bureau, and has been inspiring students to pursue an education in agriculture for nearly 20 years.

The Ag Awareness events will run through Thursday.
