Aurora fourth graders spent quality time Oct. 8 at the fairgrounds, getting up close and personal with the agriculture industry. 
Out of four sessions, one included a popcorn presentation by Mariah Newmyer (Food, Nutrition and Health Extension Educator), another was a combine harvester walkthrough via AKRS, as well as a grain presentation by the Aurora Coop and a visit by the Husker Beef Lab.
