Swans at Litton Ag Center
CAPTION: The pond at the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center now has two new residents — tame mute swans, donated by Tom Burke, of Platte City, Mo. According to Steve Radcliff, fair board president and Jenkins Expo Center event manager, Burke raises the birds and, while visiting the facility during a cattle show in September, decided the pond should have swans. The birds arrived Saturday. They will stay on the pond until it freezes and then be brought inside the Litton center for the winter.
