Ag Day is an annual event offered by the Purdue Extension Office to teach the youth of Huntington County how agriculture impacts their lives. All third grade students in the county are invited to a day filled with educational presentations on different types of livestock and crop farming as well as the tools and machinery used within agribusiness. Different stations are provided so the students get first-hand look at what they are learning about, and educational activity books are assembled for the children to take home so that learning about the importance and benefits of agriculture extends beyond just one day.
Ag Day 2014
Date: March 27, 2014
Location: Hier’s Park
Sponsorships: Ag Day is a collaboration of the Extension Office, local organizations and individuals. We rely of the support of the community to provide over 400 third graders with the opportunity to visit Ag Day and walk out with a goodie bag that includes the educational Ag Day Activity Book. In order to make this possible, we ask local companies to consider sponsoring a page in the activity book. Sponsorships are $75, and your company’s name, logo and website will appear on an activity page as well as on the back cover.

Ag Day Volunteers: Ag Day volunteers assist the Extension Office in many different ways. Setting up pens for animals, connecting with farmers to get animals for each station and presenters for each learning post are all ways in which volunteers help the day run smoothly.
