CALS teams with UW Athletics for “Celebrate Agriculture” game on Aug. 31

Celebrate-AgricultureCALS is teaming with UW Athletics and the state’s ag industry for a Celebrate Agriculture game on Saturday, Aug. 31, when the Badgers host the UMass Minutemen at Camp Randall Stadium.

Gameday festivities will celebrate Wisconsin agriculture and its deep UW connections to the University of Wisconsin. Agriculture will be everywhere throughout the game, from promotions, special graphics and fun agriculture facts. Commemorative game day posters will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

“How can you not be awed by Wisconsin agriculture?” says CALS dean Kate VandenBosch. “It has made huge gains in dairy, livestock, field crops, vegetables and fruit, and in protecting soil and water. It creates many thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity. We’re proud to have done research and education to support that, and we’re pleased to team up with UW Athletics to celebrate those accomplishments.”

Presenting sponsors include Hartung Brothers, Incorporated; Winfield; Badgerland Financial; Case IH; Landmark Services Cooperative; Wisconsin Vegetable & Potato Growers Association; Wick Buildings; and Crop Production Services.

Kickoff time is 11 a.m. and the game will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network. Tickets for the game are available for purchase online or by calling the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office at (608) 262-1440.
