The year 4/5/6 class at Lock Area School celebrated National Ag Day on Tuesday with a display on the school's front fence showing their appreciation for local farmers.

The display thanked farmers for their work and looked at all things a farmer does.

Each student thought of a verb that was part of a farmer's day and put it on a poster.

They hoped a lot of farmers would drive past, read the signs and realise they are appreciated.

The posters included words such as crop dust, truck, sow, mules sheep and spray.

National Agriculture Day was the idea of Gina Rinehart of Hancock Prospecting and cattle producing operation, Kidman and Co.

Since its inception, Ag Day has grown to be a broad collaboration between industry groups, corporate Australia and government.
