Ag Degree Days

I wanted to let you all know that we will be bringing Ag Degree Days back to campus this year. We will be expanding the program to two full days with more hands on and demonstration. Below is a tentative agenda… Wednesday August 2nd 8:00 am to Noon – Horsemanship with Curt Pate (open to public with separate fee charged) 1:00pm to 5:30 – Stockmanship with Curt Pate (Ag Day program begins) 5:30 meal and entertainment at the college ranch (?) Thursday August 3rd 8:00 – 5:00 “Classes in Animal Science and Natural Resources” (official schedule TBA) • Could offer a block of time for Pesticide Training (have 4 – 5 hrs available) Will make CE eligible • BQA Certification • Policy Discussion Panel Friday August 4th 8:00 to noon Hands on sessions Animal Health Chute Side Tack and Saddle Fitting Brush spraying Plant Identification(?) or Livestock Facility Design(?) All of the Friday presentations would be provided by our sponsors. Before we commit to adding the pesticide training, we would like to hear from you on the need of this training? There is some planning that will be needed in order to coordinate this option. We are happy to pursue it if you think it will help. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
