Participating schools included: Andover, Arkport, Canaseraga, Prattsburgh, Belfast, Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES, Cuba-Rushford, Bolivar-Richburg, Genesee Valley, Avoca, Fillmore, Bath, Alfred-Almond, and Scio.

During the day, approximately 750 first- and second-graders toured the college farm, learning about vegetable production, milk production, horses, small animals, and agriculture and general. Alfred State Agriculture and Veterinary Technology Department students served as tour guides for the event.

Dr. Phil Schroeder, chair of the department, said, “We had a big group of super enthusiastic kids and our students did an awesome job as tour guides.”
