Ag Day Celebration!

Picture1The Nebraska Agribusiness Club celebrated Ag Day (March 19) with a fundraiser social at the Nebraska Club in Lincoln.  The event was generously hosted and sponsored by the University of Nebraska Foundation.

Besides the great food and drinks, the members celebrated agriculture by raising funds to provide a copy of First Peas to the Table by Susan Grigsby to every elementary school library in the Lincoln Public Schools system.  In total over $660 dollars were raised to purchase the books.

First Peas to the Table was recognized as the Agriculture in the Classroom’s book of year.  The book is described as “A fun work of fiction in which a girl competes in a classroom garden competition to see who can get the ‘first peas to the table.’ Based on the contest that Thomas Jefferson hosted held with his friends and neighbors every year, this book seamlessly integrate school gardens, history, botany, and seasonal weather themes into one fun-to-read book.”

Nebraska Agribusiness Club Celebrates National Agriculture Week

National Agriculture Week is quickly approaching and we are in the final planning stages for our club’s activities!

To kick off the week on Monday, March 5th, a club officer will do a live interview on 96KX, 1240KFOR and 92.9 The Eagle in the 8 am hour. The officer will share some important information about Nebraska agriculture and the club, plus will be giving away prize packages for callers to call in and win!

National Agriculture Day is Thursday, March 8th and we’re celebrating in a BIG way — with a LIVE radio remote at Super Saver on 48th and O St, from 4pm to 6pm. As a member, this is an opportunity for you and your organization to promote, promote, promote! Bring in koozies, recipe cards, pens, educational information, coupons or ANYTHING that you would like to share with Lincoln consumers. ALMOST ANYTHING GOES! For example, the Department of Agriculture is participating at this event by bringing staff members, as well as members of the Nebraska Agriculture Youth Council to distribute information and answer questions in the store. The folks at Prairieland Dairy are also coming with a dairy calf (in the parking lot) — HOW EXCITING IS THAT! This live remote can be bigger and better with more of our club members being involved!

If you and your business or organization plan on participating in the live remote in some way, or have additional questions, please talk with Kyla — kyla@nepork.org or 308-529-2880 (cell).
