The John Deere Pavilion hosted the 4th annual Ag Education Day in downtown Moline, Iowa. Visitors were treated to demonstrations of various tasks that are performed on a farm, as the informative program celebrated the agricultural industry, according to the Quad-City Times. 

"Our goal is to teach children about the different aspects of agriculture," Kristen Veto, a meeting planner for John Deere, told the news source. "We hope they’re having so much fun they don’t realize they’re learning something."

The free family event featured an interactive farm that came complete with a full arsenal of John Deere equipment. While the focus of the day was on the various aspects of the farm, the young children favored the many tractors that were present, the Times reported.

Families took turns placing their young children in the cabs of the massive John Deere combines, as the kids enjoyed rides around the field in the large farm vehicles, according to the news source.

Grain harvesting combines from John Deere can come equipped with 40-foot configurations to maximize efficiency and output, reported the company website.
