Mead proclaims this week ‘Wyoming Agricultural Literacy Week’

SHERIDAN — Governor Matt Mead has proclaimed this week “Wyoming Agricultural Literacy Week” as part of the Wyo. Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher Committee “Ag Books for Kids” program.

Students are encouraged to read agricultural books to learn about the industry whether they intend to study it for a career or not, to better understand the many aspects of our daily lives that are made possible by agriculture.

In conjunction, three contests are being offered including a coloring contest for kindergarten and first-graders, poster contest for second- and third-graders and a creative writing contest for fourth- and fifth-graders.

To participate, students should first visit a library to check out the 2014 book “Pigs and Pork in the Story of Agriculture” by Susan Anderson and JoAnne Buggey. Next see and click on the “Education” tab for contest rules and details.

For more information call 532-2002 or email

The deadline for the contests is April 10.
