Successful Critter Swap held Saturday despite gray skies, drizzle

    Pete Snyder of Imperial wanted to start a critter swap event locally so people wouldn’t have to travel so far to show, sell, buy or trade their live critters.

    Ag Safety Day began as a summer community local event.
    During the 2015-2016 school year, Ag Safety Day became a Chase County Schools (CCS) event for K-6 students.
