Some University of Nebraska-Lincoln students have helped their classmates find out where their food comes from.

Several dozen UNL students with agricultural backgrounds stepped up to help at Tuesday's "Husker Food Connection."

As country music provided aural ambiance, citified students rode a mechanical bull, milked a mechanical cow, clambered aboard a tractor and ingested some agricultural facts.

Agricultural economics major Alissa Doerr, of Creighton, says most people are three or more generations removed from farms, so they've never been to one to see food being grown or otherwise produced.

A 27-year-old graduate accounting student from South Korea, SoJin Yu, says it is "very interesting to see animals in person."
