Spring is always a busy season for the agricultural industry. Farmers are hitting the fields, baby animals are being born and special promotional events and activities are taking place.
As an agricultural advocate, I believe one of the best ways to learn about agriculture is by attending these events and taking the opportunity to talk with agriculturalists first hand.
This upcoming Saturday, April 14th, the Dane County Farm Bureau will be holding their second annual Family Farm Day at the Madison Children’s Museum. I invite you to join in the fun by gathering your family and friends to see, taste and experience what Wisconsin’s agriculture is all about. This hands-on event takes place from 11:00am-2:00pm and is sure to make you ‘moo’ with delight and ‘grow’ your agriculture knowledge!
While at Family Farm Days, attendees will get to visit different stations and participate in many educational activities. Whether it’s making butter, exploring a cow’s digestive system or petting piglets, there’s something fun for everyone!
