Expand your livestock knowledge

FARGO - Do you wonder how milk gets to your table, how many sweaters can be made from the wool of one sheep or how a horse can sleep standing up?

You'll learn the answers to those questions and many others at "Moos, Ewes and More!" That's an event North Dakota State University's Animal Sciences Department is hosting Saturday, Sept. 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Dakota Horse Park, 5180 19th Ave. N., Fargo.

Come meet the animals that call NDSU home, the farm managers who care for them and the faculty and staff who teach and do research in the Animal Sciences Department.

You will have the chance to experience interactive and hands-on agriculture and animal demonstrations, and enjoy BBQ Boot Camp samples and dairy product treats.

This program is for the entire family and free of charge.

"North Dakota is proud of its agricultural background, and North Dakota State University would love to demonstrate some of what we do for you and your family," says Stacey Ostby, veterinary technologist in the Animal Sciences Department.
