Morrisville State College to Host Ag Day April 24

MORRISVILLE, N.Y.—Portions of the Morrisville State College campus will be transformed in celebration of Ag Day on April 24.

The event is free and open to the public.

In addition to the usual students bustling to class, the academic quad will make room for cows, calves, horses and tractors, and curious community members and students interested in learning more about agriculture.

Participants can pet a calf, guess the weight of a horse and sample Morrisville State College’s homemade ice cream during the annual event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Most events will be held in the academic quad (in front of Marshall Hall).

Tours of the greenhouses and hay rides will also be offered.

Area elementary school students will be attending the event, touring campus facilities and learning about agriculture.

Ag Day is sponsored by the Morrisville Collegiate Future Farmers of America (FFA) with assistance from agriculture-related clubs on campus.

For more information about Ag Day, call 684-6301.
