College Aggies Online

It has been a busy start to my sophomore year at UW-Madison this fall. It is hard to believe I am already into my second year of school. Club meetings, work training and class have kept me entertained pretty much every hour of the day! Tonight UW-Madison’s chapter of Collegiate Farm Bureau welcomed over forty new members at our fall picnic! It was great to see so many people excited about agriculture and excited to be on campus! We look forward to seeing them next week at our first official meeting!
New this fall: I am participating in the College Aggies Online Competition with many other college ag students around the country. I am looking forward to talking about my experience in agriculture and use social media and blogs to share my story. I encourage you to join in the conversation on Tuesday night on #agchat to discuss topics related to agriculture on twitter. Another part of the competition is blogging and sharing stories about experiences in agriculture. I am excited to keep this blog more active fall semester and share experiences I have had in college.
I am in a unique position, as I am a college student in a college town that can tend to be extremely uneducated on agriculture. This position provides me a unique opportunity to educate the public and share experiences I have had. I look forward to continuing to spark conversation among consumers and talk with the public about agricultural issues! Watch my facebook and home farm facebook, Cozy Lane Farm, twitter accounts, @KateGriswold and @Kgriswold46 and this blog for more updates, ag facts, stats and stories!
