Farm Connection Day returns to the Yolo County Fairgrounds on Friday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Over 2,500 public, private and homeschooled students from Yolo County schools will be attending.

Farm Connection Day is a partnership between Yolo County 4-H and Yolo County Farm Bureau with the help of over 200 youth and adult 4-H members who have volunteered for this event. This will be the 10th anniversary of the Farm Connection Day event.

Several educational displays, presentations and hands-on activities on topics of STEM, agriculture, livestock and arts and crafts will be going on during the event. In Waite Hall, youth 4-H members will give presentations on their various projects. In addition, Yolo County 4-H club exhibits will be showcased and arts and science entries done by the 4-H members will also be displayed.

Many agricultural exhibits and activities will be at the event. This year, students will participate in a dairy cow presentation, spin their own wool from sheep, and turn wheat from grain to flour and participate in several other hands on activities and educational displays. Students will also participate in a fun 4-H Scavenger Hunt around the fairgrounds. In addition, Farm Bureau will devote an entire building to hands on activities, where students can learn about agriculture, natural resources, and science and engineering.

Farm Connection Day is the kick-off for Yolo County 4-H’s Spring Show, which will run through Sunday, May 6. During Spring Show, 4-H members will present their projects such as livestock and creative arts and sciences which they have worked on hard throughout the year.
