[Photo Story] Ag Day Brings Loads Of Animals, Ice Cream, And Excitement

The College of Ag hosted its annual Ag Day celebration Wednesdayon the lawn adjacent to the Creamery. The weather was perfect with temps in the mid 60s as hundreds of students packed the lawn (and presumably skipped class) for some free ice cream and pictures with cute animals.

Per usual, the line for the Creamery stretched down the block.

The day featured booths and activities from more than 40 of the college’s clubs and organizations. Attendees had the option to plant flowers, chop wood, play corn hole, and even pet animals.

One popular stop throughout the day for students was the opportunity to pet and feed a horse.
The baby cow also drew a huge crowd throughout the day.
The interactive experience allowed students to get up close and personal with the animals.

The day is an opportunity for ag students to showcase what they have been working on during the past year. Keynote speakers were Rick Roush, dean of the college, as well as Nelson DiBiase, a representative from Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center.

The numerous student clubs and organizations gave presentations and offered interactive experiences for guests.
The Penn State Woodsmen Team showcased its talents during the day’s festivities.
Jason Aldean would be proud, as Penn State showcased its ‘Big Green Tractors.’

Ag Day was the perfect opportunity for the college to share knowledge about the impact agriculture has on our community. Penn State’s agriculture program ranks in the top 10 in the U.S. and is considered the best agriculture school in Pennsylvania.
