Farm Day Jubilee Set

MARCH 31, 2006--Does chocolate milk come from brown cows? Why do pigs smell? Elementary students will ask these and many more questions on April 21 during the annual Farm Day Jubilee held at Lab Farm 2 at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

Approximately 800 elementary students in grades 1 - 3 attend Farm Day, which runs from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Alpha Zeta, an honorary co-ed fraternity for the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences, work in cooperation with many other student organizations and the River Falls FFA Chapter to organize the educational opportunity.

Farm Day Jubilee is a unique opportunity for elementary students in the area to learn more about agriculture and that food doesn't just come from the grocery store. It's also a chance for students to receive hands-on experience and see animals up pclose for perhaps the first time.
