Pork Ag Mag


Everyone loves bacon! This Ag Mag includes lots of information about where our bacon, ribs, ham, and other pork products come from. Students will interpret a diagram showing which parts of the pig are used for various cuts of meat, learn the steps involved in raising pigs, and discover how pig farmers work to protect the environment while keeping their pigs healthy and safe.

These thematic readers contain ag facts, engaging images, activity ideas, and each topic spotlights related agricultural careers.
