Thousands of youngsters from area elementary schools, Head Start programs and child care centers got a closer look at a working farm during Kiddie Days Tuesday, April 27, to Friday, April 30.

Hosted by the Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences in West Virginia University’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, Kiddie Days gave children in the region access to WVU’s Animal Sciences Farm in Morgantown, located on Stewartstown Road.

Children that attended were able to experience firsthand chickens with eggs hatching, mothers with young sheep, swine, dairy and beef cattle.

Farm personnel, students and faculty were on hand to lead the tours, answer questions and provide assistance.
