WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - School children made their way to the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe Thursday to feast their eyes on the 31st annual Ag Expo.

The expo is still setting up, but four different stations were set up to teach the students about the main points of agriculture. The children walked through everything from stuffed cows to real cows and goats and pigs.
