UWRF hosts Ag Day April 22
UW-River Falls Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter will host the second annual Ag Day on the UWRF campus on April 22 to promote Wisconsin agriculture.
With events happening all day, non-agricultural students, faculty and community members are invited to learn more about agriculture, interact with animals and enjoy food made by farmers.
Student organizations in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES), along with agricultural businesses, will have educational and interactive booths set up outside the University Center in the middle of campus from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Beginning at 6 p.m., a free pork sandwich meal will be served in the Agriculture Science building. At 7 p.m. Alice in Dairyland, Kristin Olson, will be giving a presentation. Following Alice in Dairyland, keynote speaker Daren Williams, from The Master of Beef Advocacy Program, will be presenting "Engaging in the Great Food Debate."
“We are excited to host this event to educate our fellow students, faculty and community members about the impact agriculture has on their daily lives,” said Erik Warmka, a UWRF Collegiate Farm Bureau member. “This event allows non-agriculture students and faculty to get a first-hand experience with agriculture by the agriculture students bringing the farm to campus.”
