Members of the university’s Collegiate Farm Bureau (CFB) will be giving UW-Madison students an opportunity to interact with agriculture at Ag Day on Campus this Wednesday, April 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Library Mall.

The event falls on Earth Day this year, so CFB students – many of whom grew up on farms – will focus on sharing messages about sustainability in agriculture.

“We are excited to host the fifth annual Ag Day on Campus to help students get connected with the agricultural industry and learn how modern farming continues to be sustainable,” said Kate Griswold, UW-Madison life sciences communication major and CFB member, in a CFB news release about the event.

For the third year in a row, CFB will partner with the University Club to provide food samples featuring products grown and produced in Wisconsin. The University Club’s menu that day will also feature some of these products, which include: milk from Sassy Cow Creamery, Rushing Waters smoked trout, Gardens To Be micro greens, Franklin pork, Pure Sweet honey, Underground Butcher meats and artisanal Wisconsin cheeses.

The Collegiate Farm Bureau is a University of Wisconsin-Madison student organization acting as a voice for agriculture – striving to educate the local college community about agriculture, the food sciences and agribusiness.
