2016 Agriculture Education Day Scheduled
The 2016 Shelby County Agriculture Education Day will be held on Friday, May 6th at the Sheriff’s Posse Rodeo Arena from 9:00 a.m. until noon. This fun, free, hands-on educational event is open to the public and geared towards children PreK – 3rd grades. Participants will learn about agriculture, food and nutrition, passenger safety, sport fishing, potato planting, and beekeeping, just to name a few. We have over 30 educational demonstrations scheduled with the Mobile Dairy, Texas Forest Service, Texas Parks & Wildlife, a petting zoo, hay ride, farm implement exhibits, and many more to present.
Our goal is to provide the opportunity for Shelby County youth to understand agriculture and how it affects our everyday lives. Last year we had over 1,000 youth and adults to attend this year. If you have any questions on this event, contact the Shelby County Extension office at 936-598-7744.
