Schools in the area surrounding Swift Current, particularly the Chinook School Division & Holy Trinity School Division, are invited to attend this hybrid event.

The Swift Current Ag & Ex has a goal - to promote agriculture awareness. Programs like Discover the Farm: A Farm Facts Experience have been developed (and are expanding every year) to encourage youth involvement in agriculture, as well as expand their knowledge of food production, farm safety, nutrition, and animal care. The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® educates school aged children on the importance of safety and health lessons as they relate to life on the farm. These one-day events provide education, training, and resources to make farm, ranch, and rural life safer and healthier for children and their communities. The event includes interactive sessions where the participants can learn about safety, food production, and the agriculture industry. (about 2 hours in length). 

The program is a great opportunity to be a yearly field trip for your class, as new topics and components are added on a yearly basis. The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® was added in 2013, followed by the Animal Health & Safety program in 2014. 

To book your class, please contact the Swift Current Ag & Ex office. Participating educators will receive resource activity packages.
