The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment Ambassadors hosted their annual Ag Awareness Day Wednesday, April 6, 2016. Agriculture-related organizations and businesses were invited to share and demonstrate the significance of agriculture. Representing KyCorn and Ky Small Grains was communications director, Kirstie Darnall.
"The UK Ag Awareness Day allows advocates of the industry to have conversations with the general community about the impact agriculture has on their day-to-day life," said Kirstie. "There was representation from all aspects of agriculture including, production, livestock, nutrition and UK agriculture student groups; all of which were communicating the importance of their sector in agriculture."
The event was held outside in front of Erickson Hall. During the allotted time, students, faculty, staff and community members make their way through the booths to learn about agriculture, pick up information and gifts and play a few games.
