Fun ag-related events coming up before UW football game

Sep 22, 2017 Todd Fornstrom, Pine Bluffs


"Wyoming Needs Agriculture" Day is coming to the University of Wyoming Cowboy Football game Saturday, Sept. 23, and the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation is proud to sponsor the game day event. Cowboy fans are asked to bring canned goods or monetary donations to the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation area at the "Pre-Game Zone" at the Indoor Practice Facility from 5-8 p.m. The first 400 fans donating will receive a T-shirt.

The drive will benefit the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies (WFBR); Wyoming's only food bank. The WFBR serves hunger relief agencies in all of Wyoming's 23 counties.

An "Ag Olympics" fun event produced by the Albany County Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers will be provided. As WyFB president, I invite you to stop by to visit with farmers and ranchers from around the state and have some fun before the football game. The Cowboys play Hawaii Saturday night with an 8:15 p.m. kickoff.

The Farm Bureau Young Farmer & Rancher "Harvest for All" is a national program that raises food and money for local and state food banks who provide hunger relief. In Wyoming, the WyFB YF&R program contributes donations to the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies and various local hunger-relief agencies affiliated with the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies.

Go Pokes! Wyoming needs agriculture. Agriculture is keeping Wyoming strong.
