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.
