Brown County dairy group schedules three promotion events

Jan. 28, 2014 | 0 comments

GREEN BAY

Brown County's dairy promotion committee has scheduled three agriculture advocacy events within the next seven weeks.

On Thursday, Feb. 20, a session titled "Agriculture Advocacy — Why Tell Your Story?" will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Legends in De Pere, 875 Heritage Road. Leading presenter Becky Murkley will describe what she calls a "Talk Farmer" program.

Murkley developed this program during 2013 while she was a graduate student in agricultural education at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. It contains cross-curricular lesson plans suitable for Wisconsin's classroom standards, interactive maps with dairy and agricultural data, a guide and video for answering children's questions about agriculture, and a tool kit and video on how to arrange and conduct a farm tour.

The Feb. 20 workshop is free and open to everyone interested in the topic. A lunch will be served. More information about Talk Farmer is available at no cost at https://www.sites.google.com/site/talkfarmerwi/.

On Tuesday, March 4, Brown County Dairy Promotions will sponsor a "Taste of Wisconsin" from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the National Railroad Museum, 2285 South Broadway in Green Bay. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for age 6-10, and free for up to age 5. Tickets may be ordered online at www.BrownCountyDairyPromotions.com or by calling 920-371-2993.

The event will feature foods made by local chefs who will demonstrate their culinary skills by using products grown and manufactured in Wisconsin. A related purpose of the "Taste of Wisconsin" promotion is to acquaint the public with the economic and employment impact that Wisconsin's agriculture sector has in the local community.

How to adapt the Talk Farmer materials to a dairy farm tour will be demonstrated from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19. That's when the Brown County Dairy Promotions will conduct a tour at Wayside Dairy near the village of Wayside in the southeast part of the county.

Murkley and Sarah Englebert of the promotions group will lead the tour, which is open to persons of all ages. Learning stations will be set up at several places at Wayside Dairy. A lunch will be served.

Registrations are requested for the Feb. 20 and March 19 events. To register, go to the https://www.sites.google.com/site/talkfarmerwi/workshops. Those workshops are designed for farmers, veterinarians, and FFA advisors but everyone is welcome.

More information is also available from Murkley by e-mail to bmurkley@gmail.com or phone to 920-369-6330, from Englebert by e-mail to sarahbcdp@gmail.com or phone to 920-660-0932, or by e-mail to talkfarmer247@gmail.com.
