Every semester the Cornell chapter puts on Ag Day to celebrate and promote the world of agriculture. Farm equipment and animals are brought to the Ag quad where students can see the animals and machinery up close and ask questions. Students love petting the calves, goats and lambs. Agricultural clubs and organizations are invited to set up a display or create an activity for students to learn more about agriculture. Actives Carly Neumann and Ross Taylor enthusiastically advertised for the event by wearing pig and cow costumes all day. The horticulture club offered pumpkin carving, and collegiate 4H had a very competitive hay bale toss. Cow chip bingo was a hit again this year, and all proceeds raised will go to the Tompkins County 4H. Laughing Goat Fiber Farm brought their goats and fiber to display. One of the highlights this semester was free Choboni! Choboni generously donated Greek yogurt to be given away during Ag Day. The mild weather, free Choboni, happy animals, and club participation helped make Ag Day a success.
