Art of Agriculture
In April, our club participated in the 6th Annual Art of Agriculture event hosted by Sigma Alpha and Alpha Gamma Rho on the Arts Quad to bring awareness to other parts of campus about where their food comes from. Attendees had a blast meeting and learning about Sunny the fistulated cow and taking pictures with Bertha the inflatable cow from New York Animal Ag Coalition.
Following Art of Agriculture CUDS members attended CALS Day on the Ag Quad with Bertha! It was a great opportunity to talk to other ag students and campus members about the dairy industry as well as all that our club does.
In April, club members cleaned up our section of the highway in Lansing that we adopted in preparation for Earth Day! 2018-2019 Activities Chair Jacob Maslyn started the tradition which will continue each semester, where students will continue maintaining that section of the highway.
Dairy Cow Birthing Center
Each year since 2013, CUDS has participated in the Dairy Cow Birthing Center at the New York State Fair hosted by the New York Animal Agriculture Coalition. The Birthing Center is an interactive exhibit where fairgoers can ask dairy farmers and industry professionals, including our students about dairy farming while watching cows give birth!
