Summary 2020 —
Innovative Programming Conducted and Educational Resources Developed
Pre and Post programming evaluations were implemented in several areas of the state in 2020. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of each program. Each Farm Bureau office was provided an Ag Literacy "Kit" which included Ag Mags, lesson plans, popular ag books, and educator guides. Monthly field trips and AgDays were implemented across the state, some moving to a virtual platform as needed.
