The Department of Animal Sciences will host “Moos, Ewes and More,” a family event to learn more about livestock, on Sept. 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Dakota Horse Park, 5180 19th Ave. N., Fargo. The event is free.
Participants will learn how milk gets to the table, how many sweaters can be made from the wool of one sheep and how a horse can sleep while standing. They will have the opportunity to see the animals and meet the farm managers, faculty and staff in the animal sciences department. Animal demonstrations are planned in addition to BBQ Boot Camp samples and dairy product treats.
“North Dakota is proud of its agricultural background, and NDSU would love to demonstrate some of what we do for you and your family,” said Stacey Ostby, veterinary technologist in the animal sciences department.
