You're invited to participate in a half-day bus tour of selected sites in Union County to view first-hand and learn about agricultural production, research and conservation efforts in the area. The tour also gives you a chance to interact with many local growers and ranchers. Note: a detailed agenda will not be available until the day of the tour.
The day starts with a short program at CPS (7:30 a.m.) followed immediately with the bus tour. Periodically along the tour route, participants will unload reload the buses at various stops which may include areas with difficult terrain. The traditional lunch consisting of barbecue steak, baked potato, and salad will be served to tour participants at approx. noon at a site along the tour route. Local 4-H Ambassadors and FFA members will be on hand throughout the day to help out. After lunch, bus passengers will be returned to Crop Production Services at approx. 2:00 p.m. For general tour information, please contact Darrin Walenta or Lenard at the numbers listed above.
