Wellington Junior Farmers tested knowledge at fall fair

MOUNT FOREST - The community here got a taste and a test of what if take to be a “smart” farmer at the Mount Forest Fall Fair a few weeks ago.

Members of the Wellington County Junior Farmers club tested the knowledge of participants with the game Are You Smarter Than a Farmer.

It was geared to adults and children of all ages who were asked several questions based on farming and agriculture. The questions were multiple choice and ranged anywhere from, what color is a John Deere tractor?, to what’s the average birth weight of a new born piglet?

Kids were given a fall fair passport, and after visiting the Junior Farmer booth they got a pass for participation and were eligible to win a prize.

The skill testing game was visited with over 50 participants taking a crack at the questions.

The Wellington Junior farmers hold  monthly meetings on Monday nights in Drayton, along with a fun event. Members are ages 15 to 30, and can be from a rural or non rural back ground.
