Day 8 - A DAY ON THE FARM
Welcome to Jackson, Mississippi. Capitol Dome at sunset; Catfish at the Catfish Farm; Catfish statue at entrance of the research center.
Day 8 was a day at the farm! We started with a meeting with the Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi. After meeting with the Mayor, our class got onto a bus and traveled to a catfish farm. Mississippi has several different areas of agriculture. However, one of the largest commodities in the state is Catfish farms.
We started the tour with a quick bite of fired catfish, slaw, fries and sweet ice tea. After lunch, we toured the fields of the catfish farms and went through a processing plant to see how catfish is prepared. This was an unbelievable experience.
Tomorrow, we travel to New Orleans!
Regan...Good luck in your game tomorrow. Get a base hit and try your best!
