DSU Ag Club to host 31st annual Kids Day on the Farm April 15
 
DICKINSON, N.D. (April 1, 2021)The Dickinson State University (DSU) Agriculture Club has been bringing the farm into town every spring for more than 30 years. This year, Kids Day on the Farm is scheduled for Thursday, April 15, 2021. This free event, held in DSU’s indoor arena (400 State Ave.), offers a unique experience to children third grade and younger – along with teachers, parents, friends and families – about life on the farm.
 
“Our goal is to teach students about different types of animals and crops where their food comes from by engaging them in many different activities,” said Lily McFadden, DSU Ag Club president.
 
Thanks to the generosity of many local donors, visitors to Kids Day on the Farm enjoy a petting zoo complete with a miniature horse, a miniature donkey, goats, sheep, calves, bunnies and ducks, along with chicks, peafowl, horses, pigs and more! And that is just the animals! There are also guest rodeo queens visiting, wagon rides, trips through the soil tunnel, roping lessons, a Farm Bureau booth, and milk and cookies for a treat at the end of the tour.
 
“This event is put on entirely by the students of the DSU Ag Club and has been a favorite event in the community for over 30 years,” said Dr. Chip Poland, chair of the Department of Agriculture and Technical Studies at Dickinson State. “We are proud to continue offering this experience to Dickinson and the surrounding communities.”
 
The Kids Day on the Farm event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last guided tour starting at 3:30 p.m. Appointments to have a guided tour are arranged every 15 minutes throughout the day. Each guided tour will last approximately 60-75 minutes, and can accommodate up to 50 children.
