Adding to the traditional farm and ranch experience of a county fair, the Montana Agri-Women (MAW) will host the 4th Annual “Ag Sprouts” Building during the 2015 MontanaFair Aug. 8-15. Each day from Noon to 8 p.m., agricultural events will feature fun and educational activities to promote crop and animal production for the entire family.
“We really enjoy this opportunity at MontanaFair to connect with the public and promote and provide reliable information about all aspects of agriculture,” says Kellie Kittelmann, MAW president. “It’s important as Montana Agri-Women to continue the agriculture traditions of a county fair and to give urban kids and their parents a positive agricultural experience.”
“Ag Sprouts” provides an opportunity for kids to enjoy an animal farm; a stick-horse rodeo twice a day at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.; farm toys in sand and grain boxes; planting pots with herbs and vegetables; and special animal demonstrations in the arena.
