Bloomfield’s Community Schools put on their petting zoo was on Monday, May 14.
FFA officer, Addison Barger, was in charge of the event this year.
“Every year we try to get something new, this year the honeybees are new,” Barger said.
The honeybees as well as the bunnies belong to Ella McFarland.
“A lot of the high schoolers volunteer themselves or their animals.” Barger had to turn down some animals this year as too many of the same kind were volunteered.
“We had, like, five bucket calves and I had to say, no, we only need one guys.”
Inside the Ag shop there were also a bucket calf, two goats, and a pig. The bucket calf belongs to Gage Pedersen and the pig belongs to Jackson Eisenhauer.
The two goats belonged to Dawson French as well as the corgi puppy. The golden lab puppies belonged to Dylan Kauth. Also inside was Mike Schianost with his snake.
Outside was Aubrey Jeannoutot’s cow and Abijean Rohde’s horse.
The children really enjoy the diverse animals all brought together in one place. Ag teacher, Kirk Hamm said “The elementary students just love it, but all students are welcome.”
