Discover The Farm

More than Horse-Play... Check out the Ag & Ex School Programs

 

The Swift Current Ag & Ex Association has a goal: to promote agriculture/farm/ranch awareness. Programs have been developed to encourage youth knowledge and involvement in the agricultural field.

‘Discover the Farm: A Farm Facts Experience’ is expanding, showcasing livestock information, food production and processing, nutrition, and farm safety.

The Swift Current Ag & Ex will continue to expand and enhance public education and information during the Swift Current Frontier Days and other events throughout the year. The Swift Current Ag & Ex is committed to the betterment of the community.


Discover the Farm: A Farm Facts Experience

Schools: Thursday, April 25th and Friday, April 26th, 2019

General Public Saturday April 27th, 2019 Featuring Exotic Birds & Animal Sale, Country Crafts & Rabbit Show

The Discover the Farm Program could become a yearly field trip for school in the Chinook School Division with new components added on a yearly basis. In 2013, we added Progressive Agriculture Safety Day, and in 2014, we added Animal Health and Safety.

The Discover the Farm is a great opportunity for the students of Swift Current and area to participate in this interactive educational experience. Information relating to farm animals, food production, and farm safety will be shared with students through a brief presentation, followed by an activity. Dairy cows, poultry, beef, Agriculture in Saskatchewan, safety and more are included in approximately 12 stations – about 2 hours in length.

Teachers please reply by April 8th, 2019, with the number of students that will be attending. An application form, which also includes more detailed information, is available. Participating educators will receive resource activity packages.
