Welcome to Jefferson County
Wisconsin Farm Technology Days 2019
July 23-25, 2019
A long time ago, on a farm far , far away....
The naysayers of an ‘honest days work’ reign. Having brainwashed the youth of Wisconsin that ‘there’s a better way,’ continue to seize social media control of the farming narrative.
Only General Magnolia’s band of #AgEnthusiasts stand against the rising retweets, certain that Jedi Master Towns will restore a spark of hope to explore the real story of Wisconsin Ag careers.
Time is of the essence, so the brave heroes of Wisconsin FFA and SkillsUSA chapters are encouraged to mount a journey aboard...the Cheesehead Express...to Ag Career Day 2019...
Get on board the Cheesehead Express on July 23, 2019 for a FREE trip to Ag Career Day! Buses from 10
different locations in the state will will embark to Jefferson County for the 65th annual Wisconsin Farm
1,000 students, going into grades 7th - 12th are invited to attend and will receive: A free Ag Career Day t-shirt, free admission to the show, free transportation, a coupon for a free scoop of Culver’s fresh frozen custard.
And, each student will be provided with a lanyard holding a cow ear tag with an RFID button on it to participate in the Interactive Career Scavenger Hunt powered by Allflex Livestock Intelligence.
Career Scavenger Hunt!
Starting in the Future Generations Center, students will get a Scavenger Hunt Clue Sheet to help find 12 Career Exploration Stops, three ‘extra clue stations’ and 4 selfie stations!
We are working on prizes to provide every participant, who completes the Career Scavenger Hunt. We’ll know if you’ve done that because at every stop, you will need to look for the ‘Career Takeaway’ and then get scanned by the cow monitoring wand before moving on to your next stop!
First 1,000 Students! Register Now!
