DEADLINE: Moms on the Farm Registration
Start Date: 9/30/2013 All Day
End Date: 9/30/2013

Event Description:
A group of female faculty and staff across the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture and the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences and others involved with agriculture will host the third annual Moms on the Farm tour Monday, October 7, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The deadline to register is September 30. The tour will include trips to beef, poultry and dairy farms. Lunch will be provided, followed by cooking demonstrations by the Arkansas Cattlewomen. The tour begins at the Pauline Whitaker Arena (1335 W. Knapp St.) off Garland Avenue, approximately two miles north of the University of Arkansas campus. Participants will be transported by bus to tour locations. The Moms on the Farm tour is free but seats are limited.

Non-farm moms planning to attend the event are registered on a first-come first-served basis. The goal of the tour is to help mothers understand more about agricultural production, food safety and nutrition and experience Northwest Arkansas agriculture first-hand.

“We are really excited to share agriculture with the women of Northwest Arkansas,” said Janeal Yancey, event organizer and UA meat scientist. The Arkansas Cattlewomen will conclude the tour with beef and dairy food cooking demonstrations. “Typically, people feel more knowledgeable about doing their taxes than about making healthy food decisions for their families,” said Yancey. “The cooking demonstrations will provide an opportunity for moms to ask health-oriented questions, and the tours will help them better understand where their food comes from.”

For more information or to register, contact Janeal Yancey at 870-688-4247 or jws09@uark.edu.
