The Next Generation


Ag in Perry County spans across age disparity in the county. Many family owned farm land exist today, ranging from cattle, catfish, vegetation and goat. Youth are trained at an early stage in life to become the next generation of agriculturist by working on the family farm. The above photo is of three young girls feeding a kid (young goat) whose mother died after birth.
