CALS came to the fair

A showcase of College of Agriculture and Life Sciences programs was on view at the 2013 North Carolina State Fair. Prominent in the fair’s Agriculture Today tent was a CALS exhibit focused on accessibility in agriculture, with displays from the Biological and Agricultural Engineering Research Shop, the North Carolina AgrAbility Partnership and Extension therapeutic horticulture programs. (See related report and photos.)

Nearby were cleverly decorated hay bales, created by 4-H’ers from across the state.

In the Expo Center, the CALS Animal Science Club’s Milking Booth welcomed eager participants. And fairgoers lined up for Howling Cow Ice Cream, made in the College’s FBNS Department.
