**Due to the threat of severe weather on April 17, this event has been moved to April 19 at 9 a.m. Other details remain the same.**
Collegiate Farm Bureau at UW–Madison will celebrate its annual Ag Day on Campus with the theme ‘The One Percent Who Feed the 100 Percent.’ The event will take place Wednesday, April 17, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Library Mall in downtown Madison to educate students on the importance of agriculture.
Thanks to technology and dedication, farmers, who make up one percent, are producing food for 100 percent of the population. As students walk through Library Mall, they will be able to taste Wisconsin food products provided by The University Club and participate in interactive activities such as a photo booth, agricultural trivia and Culvers’ giveaways. Additionally, 2,000 pints of milk, 2,000 cups of Yodelay yogurt, cheese and hot food will be distributed, and students will be able to use our themed Snapchat filter across campus.
Collegiate Farm Bureau members are excited to use this event to “agvocate” for the agriculture industry. Members are looking forward to sharing their agriculture stories and how they have grown through the industry and encourage a greater appreciation for Wisconsin farmers.
