Students from around southwest Saskatchewan had an opportunity to learn more about agriculture, ranching and safety on the farm during the Swift Current Ag & Ex educational event Discover the Farm: A Farm Facts Experience at Kinetic Exhibition Park Stockade, April 21 and 22. Four hundred students attended the two hour informational event in the Stockade building during the two days. They visited 12 interactive exhibits, including some with live farm animals, where they learned more about a variety of topics such as food and beef production, large animal safety, first aid, and the safe operation of farm equipment. The final day of the event on April 23 was open to the public and included an exotic bird and animal sale as well as the Summer Dreamin' Garden Expo. Discover the Farm has been recognized by the International Association of Fairs and Exhibitions as an outstanding agricultural and safety education program.
