Do you wonder how milk gets to your table, how many sweaters the wool of one sheep will make or how a horse can sleep standing up?
For the answers to these questions and many more, come to the 10th annual “Moos, Ewes and More!” hosted by North Dakota State University’s Animal Sciences Department. This free, family-friendly event will be held Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the NDSU Equine Center on 19th Avenue North in Fargo.
The first 500 participants will receive a free beef breakfast burrito sponsored by the North Dakota Beef Commission and prepared by NDSU’s Carnivore Catering, as well as a free drawstring bag sponsored by the North Dakota Livestock Alliance, NDSU Agricultural Experiment Station, and NDSU Research and Creative Activity office.
Moos, Ewes and More will have a mix of new and old activities this year, including wagon rides and Kid Alley games, as well as horse and canine demonstrations. You also will have a chance to bottle feed a calf, guess the feedstuffs and see research in action.
Plus, you can meet the animals that call NDSU home, the farm managers who care for them, and the faculty and staff who teach and do research in the Animal Sciences Department.
