CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - In Cheyenne, children begin learning about agriculture when they're young. Each year, the Cowbelles Ag Expo helps Laramie County fourth graders. The students are taught about agriculture at the Archer Complex.

This is a two-day event going on now. It features twenty different exhibits. They cover everything from milking a cow, animal exhibits, and wheat to Wyoming grasslands and bees.

Pam Freeman, Vice President of Laramie County Cowbelles says, "I think it’s really important because there’s only one percent of the United States population that’s involved in agriculture and we’re getting less and less resources, so we need more people involved."
