Morrisville State College to Host Ag Day April 26

MORRISVILLE, N.Y.—Pet a calf, guess the weight of a horse, sample Morrisville State College’s ice cream.

These are some of the activities that will be part of Morrisville State College’s Ag Day celebration April 26 on the Morrisville campus.

The annual event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is free and open to the public. Most events will be held in the academic quad (in front of Marshall Hall).

There will also be tractor and animal exhibits. In addition, tours of the greenhouses and hay rides will be offered.
