Innisfail & District Ag Society Hosted Grade 5 Farm Tour

Grade 5 Farm Tour

On June 5, over 180 students, teachers and parents from the Innisfail Middle School and Penhold Elementary School were immersed in farm life for a whole day. A successful, fun event geared towards educating local students of the importance of agriculture in their lives, one that the Innisfail and District Agricultural Society is proud to give to our future generations.

Sincere thanks to our farm tour hosts: Yff's Dairy Farm, Edgar Asparagus Farm, White Haven Cattle Farm, Gisler Boer Goats. Our Sponsors and Supporters: Pioneer Hi-Bred Canada, Red Deer County, Subway, Central Alberta Coop, Alberta Beef Zone 5, EQUS, Alberta Milk, Henday Mechanical and Van Aar Farm.

To all the volunteers who took time from their busy schedules to do what needed to be done, with their efforts as bus guides, volunteers for farm hosts and aides of the vast amount of information presented throughout the day, we thank all of you!

Students helped White Haven help the environment, by planting spruce trees in the understorey of a stand of poplar trees, bringing added biodiversity to the farm.
