Ag. Awareness Day 2019



 

We are proud to announce that our 14th annual Ag Awareness Day will take place May 16, 2019 at the Barry Expo Center.  This program is a partnership between Barry County Farm Bureau, Barry County Agricultural Society, Hastings FFA, Barry County MSU Extension and the Barry County MSUE 4-H program.

This high quality, hands on field trip provides education about agriculture and food production to over 500 Barry County third grade students from five school districts.  Over 50 qualified volunteer agricultural representatives and presenters donate their time in segmented repeated hands-on experiential workshops, which include topics on animal health, agronomy, dairy robotics, farm equipment and more.  All lessons presented are in accordance with the Michigan Curriculum Framework Standards and Benchmarks. 

If you are interested in getting involved by volunteering, sponsoring or learning more contact the Barry County Farm Bureau office at (269) 945-3443 [email protected]
