Friday, March 1, 2019

An Agriculture Student Expo event is being planned as a first for Buena Vista University. The Expo is dedicated to agricultural programs at the university. The Expo will be held Wednesday, April 3, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

The Expo will be a chance for visitors to experience a bit of a college ag class and participate in hands-on demonstrations from industry professionals in the following subjects:

• Corteva Agriscience: The science and technology behind corn and soybeans.

• Venner Limousin and Ag Vision Enterprise: An interactive cow/calf demo and management conversation.

• Soil Health: Proper conservation practices in BVU’s accessible, hands-on soil lab.

• Farm Credit Services of America: How commodity marketing and trading works.

The Expo foreshadows what is possible with the new Institute for Agriculture, Food and Resource Management at Buena Vista University. Tours of the campus and newly renovated Siebens Forum will be available.
