“The idea was started because we wanted the kids in Valley and Adams county to know about agriculture, and of course primarily in Valley and Adams county it is animal agriculture,” said Dean Dryden, President of Valley/Adams Farm Bureau.

“There is a very good chance that no matter what field you go into, it will be related to agriculture.”

“So today we are doing a program called Ranchers Feeding Youth that was started here in the Valley/Adams Farm Bureau. It is in conjunction and works with the University of Idaho extension agency. Our extension agent has done a really bang-up job of helping us with curriculum,” said Dryden.

Dean Dryden is the President of the Valley/Adams County Farm Bureau, and was a student here at Meadows Valley a few… decades or so back.

This program is geared towards elementary and middle school students, and is broken into three sessions.

“We basically have is animal byproducts,” said Dryden.

“We have found ways to use the rest of the animal in different products. And see all these things up here? Yeah! These all have cow in them. What! I know, can you believe it?”
