On Friday September 28, nine agriculture students took their first agriculture field trip to SUNY Cobleskill to participate in their annual Agriculture High School Day. Students enrolled in agriculture programs all over the state participated in this event. Our students participated in events such as: Small Animal, Dairy Cattle Judging, Equine Competition, Livestock Judging, and Flower Identification.
In between competitions students were also able to tour SUNY Cobleskill’s Center for Agriculture and Natural Resource campus. Even though students haven’t quite learned all of these skills in class, they were still able to see what can be available to them if they choose a career in agriculture and learn from the students on campus. One student even said, “After coming to High School Ag Days, I think that I could actually do this as a career.”
