Celebrating food and farming at UMN

 By Haleigh Ortmeier-Clarke

Ag & Food Day 2016The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA), the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS), and many others came together for the 4th Annual Celebrate Ag & Food Day. The festivities took place just outside TCF Bank Stadium prior to the Gopher football game this past weekend.

Football (and food) fans were treated to a free tailgate party where they had the opportunity to try some sweet corn ice cream, sponsored by MCGA and made by the UMN Dairy Lab.

Celebrate Ag & Food Day is just one more great way to connect with consumers and Minnesota agriculture was well-represented! #GoGophers
