Another Successful Celebrate Ag & Food Day!

On September 19th the University of Minnesota Gopher Football team was host to another successful Celebrate Ag & Food Day that ended with a 10-7 victory over the Kent State Flashes. Celebrate Ag & Food Day was host to many conversations between those that prepare and produce agricultural products and those who consume them. A pregame tailgate set the stage and allowed consumers to try the products directly from the producers themselves. Educational displays were hosted by CFANS student groups and 4-H teams to share information about crops, nutrition, poultry, GMO research, and dairy production with Gopher fans in attendance!

The highlights of the day were the delicious food that was shared, the calves that got to visit TCF Bank Stadium all the way from the St. Paul Campus and President Eric Kaler, who visited with ag and food industry representatives and students, even making time to check out an impressive Gopher Poultry Science Club trivia game!
