ISU Extension & Outreach hosts Annual Precision Ag and Animal Science Days


Iowa State University Extension & Outreach hosted their annual Precision Agriculture and Animal Science Days September 4-6. Nearly 400 students from 21 schools across Northwest Iowa attended. Students were introduced to a variety of career opportunities related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by being able to attend 8 different sessions related to Precision Ag, Beef, and Dairy. For the Dairy industry Agropur, Wells Blue Bunny, and Gorter's Clay & Dairy Equipment provided interactive workshops about careers opportunities available in the dairy industry and where the future of the dairy industry is headed. This was a great way to expose high school students about employment opportunities in the dairy industry, especially those that are right here in Northwest Iowa.
