Wisconsin Farm Technology Days-Jefferson County is offering a new, exciting opportunity for FFA and 4-H youth across the state by hosting Ag Career Day.
Ag Career Day starts in the early morning of Tuesday, July 23rd where students will get aboard the “Cheesehead Express” which will pick up in 10 – 15 different cities across Wisconsin. The bus locations are circled on the map below. Before the trip, students will be given a free t-shirt, drawstring backpack, sunglasses, and a coupon for a scoop of Culver’s custard. Buses are scheduled to arrive to the Farm Tech grounds around 9 am to begin a fun scavenger hunt.
And it wouldn’t be a Wisconsin agriculture event without a cow ear tag! To record students’ progress in the scavenger hunt, they will be wearing a lanyard with a cow ear tag with an RFID button. Upon finding a scavenger hunt stop, students will need to interact with a “Career Takeaway” – a question or a discovery. Upon completing their interaction, a volunteer with a cow monitoring wand will scan each students RFID button. A beep by the wand will indicate they can move on to the next stop. This free event is a chance for 4-H and FFA youth to learn more about the agriculture industry and the endless opportunities it provides!

Ag Career Day will remain open until at least June 30th. Ag Career Day is free to 4-H and FFA members and is intended for kids in 7th through 12th grade.
