NDSU To Host ‘Moos, Ewes And More’ Event Sept. 14

For the fourth year in a row, NDSU’s animal sciences department will host Moos, Ewes and More at the NDSU Equine Center on 19th Avenue North in Fargo.

The free, family friendly event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

As always, you will have the chance to experience interactive and hands-on agriculture and animal demonstrations, and enjoy BBQ Boot Camp samples and dairy product treats. New activities this year include the Ask the Animal Scientist booth, stick horse races for the kids, AnimalDetectives and horsemanship demonstrations.

You also can meet the animals that call NDSU home, the farm managers who care for them, and the faculty and staff who teach and do research in the animal sciences department.

“The average American is three to four generations removed from the farm, and as urban areas grow and rural areas shrink, there is a tendency for people to forget where their food and fiber come from,” says Erika Berg, assistant professor of animal sciences and co-chair of the event. “Moos Ewes and More is an effort to reconnect people with livestock and agriculture.”
