Submitted Photo Chaves County school youth are learning some lessons about agriculture and natural resources during the two-day Kids and Kows and More program that continues today at the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds. The two-day program is hosted by the New Mexico State University Chaves County Cooperative Extension Service and Southwest Dairy Farmers for all fourth-grade students in the county. Students learn about such things as food production, pest control efforts and safe use of equipment and vehicles. Here cattle rancher Kyra Monzingo of Fort Sumner talks about beef production. According to Extension Service staff, nationally only about 2 percent of youth are involved in agricultural activities. The Kids and Kows event helps educate students about life on farms and ranches and about agriculture’s contributions to the state.
