Youth Ag DayMar 20 2018
This marks the 16th year of Youth Ag Day, hosted by the Solano County Fair Association. Youth Ag Day offers a unique educational experience for third-grade students in Solano County on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. More than 2,600 third graders participated in last year’s event, which provided an educational and fun environment for students to learn about the important contributions agriculture makes to their lives.
Youth Ag Day is a collaborative effort of dedicated volunteers, local farmers, ranchers, businesses and agricultural agencies. Using a field-trip format, we provide informative and interactive displays for the students. Presentations feature a wide range of topics, including sheep herding, the dairy industry, cattle herding, composting, recycling, water management, the benefits of insects, local crops and many other aspects of farm life.
