AUBURN PLANS DISCOVERY DAY, AG ROUNDUP
AUBURN, Ala., — Fall is a busy time on the Plains as Auburn University hosts two agriculture events — Ag Discovery Adventure and the Ag Roundup.
The second annual Ag Discovery Adventure is Saturday, Sept. 28, at the E.V. Smith Center off Interstate 85 between Montgomery and Auburn. The free event is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and focuses on technology’s role in agriculture.
Attendees will see chicks hatching and corn-shelling, tour a pollination garden, get lost in a corn maze, use technology for a treasure hunt and view the latest in agriculture technology. Vendors, including Auburn’s Collegiate Cattlemen and Cattlewomen, will sell concessions.
Ag Discovery Adventure is co-sponsored by the Alabama Cotton Producers, Alabama Soybean Producers, the Alabama Wheat & Feed Grains Producers, the Alabama Poultry & Egg Association, the Alabama Farmers Federation and Alabama Cattlemen’s Association.
Auburn’s 33rd annual Fall Roundup and Taste of Alabama Agriculture — commonly known as Ag Roundup — is set for Homecoming Saturday, Oct. 12, at Ag Heritage Park.
The event offers a wide array of Alabama-grown and -produced foods, informative displays and children’s activities. Live and silent auctions will raise money for the College of Agriculture’s scholarship program.
The Fall Roundup will start four hours before kickoff of Auburn’s game against Western Carolina. Admission is $5. Children six and under are admitted free.
The College of Agriculture and the AU Agricultural Alumni Association co-sponsor the event, with corporate partners Milo’s Tea, John Deere and SunSouth.
