Haskell Ag Lab Climate & Crops Family Field Day has great attendance

The Haskell Ag Lab Climate & Crops Family Field Day was a huge success on Tuesday, August 14.  We had over 400 people participate in the various activities of the day. We heard many positive comments about the day and how everyone enjoyed all of the activities offered. Vendors and booth exhibitors enjoyed the day and many want to come back again next year and we have also heard from others that want to participate next year. The speaker sessions in the morning were well attended, there was a steady flow of children and adults going through the tent, attending demonstrations, viewing educational trailers and participating in activities. The Northeast Arboretum Walking Tour was very well attended.  Lunch provided by the Nebraska Soybean Board was wonderful. Dr. Michael Boehm and Al Dutcher gave informational noon time keynote addresses. The afternoon featured research tours, drilling rig demonstrations and both were well attended and educational. The Backyard Farmer panel was a huge success with attendees asking lots of questions and the panel providing answers and showing samples of various plant and insect problems.
