Thank you to all those who made the fourth annual Ag Awareness Day a huge success! We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Organized under the leadership of students in the University of Minnesota Agricultural Education Club, the goal of Ag Awareness Day is to increase awareness of how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced and showcase the critical role American agriculture plays in maintaining a strong economy, especially as the world population continues to grow. A broad range of Minnesota agricultural producers, associations, corporations and government agencies are joining the students in this effort.
Attendees have the chance to visit with Agricultural Education Club members and ask questions of industry experts while learning more about various aspects of the agriculture industry.
The event also features interactive booths and the chance for people to see dairy cows, beef cattle (both steer and heifer), pigs, llamas, lambs and sheep.
Student organizers invite you to learn more about agriculture by visiting the Agriculture Awareness Day Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/AgAwareness.
