Weber County Farm Bureau recently hosted their first-ever Baby Farm Animal Days in Farr West. The event was a huge success with approximately 5,000 people from across the state in attendance.
Baby farm animal days was a free event to the public where anyone could walk through some antique tractors and modern combines, as well as go see the stars of the show – the piglets, calves, lambs, chicks, ducks, miniature horses, baby fowl, and much more.
Attendees got to play educational farm games and even got to milk Cookie, the model dairy cow! Weber County Farm Bureau supported local food trucks by inviting them to share their yummy grub with those in attendance. The impact on the local community was amazing. Everyone was so excited to be outdoors, and it was an exciting new way for some to learn about agriculture.
“It was an amazing experience to be part of such a successful Farm Bureau event using baby farm animals to bring awareness about our local farmers and ranchers,” said Ashlee Wayment, Weber County Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Chair. “I loved seeing the excitement on the faces of the kids and adults there. We have such a great community, but the support was even better than we anticipated.”
Weber County Farm Bureau looks forward to additional ways of connecting the public to agriculture in the future.
