The Kansas Beef Council, along with other commodity groups, will again be hosting Agriland at the Kansas State Fair, September 7-16 in Hutchinson. Located in the Pride of Kansas Building, the interactive exhibit provides an opportunity for children and adults to see how food is grown and gives them a sense for the importance of agriculture in the state.
Visitors will learn about beef production, grass, ag by-products, crops, dairy products, soils and more. As examples, youth will have opportunities to sit in the saddle for a virtual cattle drive, milk a mechanical cow, ride inside a combine to virtually harvest wheat and touch various Kansas-grown grains.
