Do you wonder how milk gets to your table, the value that animal interaction provides to humans or how a veterinarian cares for animals?
For the answers to these questions and many more, come to the Moos, Ewes and More event hosted by North Dakota State University’s Department of Animal Sciences. This free, family-friendly event will be held Saturday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the NDSU Equine Center on 19th Avenue North in Fargo, North Dakota.
Attendees will be able to meet the animals that call NDSU home, the farm managers who care for them, and the faculty and staff who teach and do research in the NDSU Department of Animal Sciences.
“Moos, Ewes and More is a great opportunity for all ages to learn more about animals, animal science and agriculture by being able to see, feel and touch,” says Skip Anderson, NDSU sheep research unit manager and event coordinator. “There will be chances to see many animals up-close including a baby lamb, calf and piglet. Participants will also see what animals like to eat and hear about what veterinarians do each day, plus so much more.”
This year, the first 500 youth attendees will receive a Moos, Ewes and More drawstring bag.
Moos, Ewes and More will have a mix of new and old activities from previous years, kids’ games and activities, a scavenger hunt and chances to visit the “prize pen.” There will also be opportunities to bottle feed a calf, guess the feedstuffs and see research in action.Source : ndsu.edu
