UWRF Collegiate Farm Bureau to Host Ag Day
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/12/2018
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter will host its annual Ag Day on Campus next week. The event will be held April 17 as a way to promote Wisconsin agriculture.
Student organizations in the UWRF's College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences, along with local agricultural businesses, will have educational and interactive booths set up outside the University Center in the middle of campus. A beef sandwich
meal will also be served in the Agriculture Science building, followed by a presentation by Wisconsin Agriculture Secretary Sheila Harsdorf.
"Ag Day on Campus is a great opportunity to reach out to our fellow students who don't have as much contact with agriculture as we do," said Joelle Liddane, a member of the collegiate Farm Bureau. "We take great pride in educating people about everything
that goes into producing the food they eat and the clothes they wear. When you're so far removed from farming, it can be easy to become misinformed about agriculture, so that's where we as a Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter can step up and change that."
Non-agricultural students, faculty and community members are invited to attend the day's festivities. The event is free and open to the public.
The UW-River Falls Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter was first established on campus in April 2012 and is associated with the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.
