"Schley County Ag Day"


Schley County Farm Bureau is planning a Community wide AG Day in May.  The event will be held on Saturday, May 2nd and will be located on the field directly across from the Schley County Primary School on the east side of South Broad Street in Ellaville. Katina Fields, Office Manager of the Schley County Farm Bureau, is working to bring together elements of our farming heritage for both children and adults to enjoy. Included in the event is "Life on the Farm" from Fort Valley State University.  This live exhibit features a cow, chickens, goats, and provides firsthand knowledge of farm life and how it affects each person on a daily basis. Wilde Plum Farms of Americus is bringing miniature horses and goats to AG Day. The FFA Club at Schley County High School under Eric Sellars will be presenting projects based on different farm commodities. There will be displays by many of the agricultural related businesses in the area including Reid Brothers Irrigation, Pioneer Seed, Crop Production Services, the Forestry Commission, and Georgia Department of Natural Resources. A few of Georgia Farm Bureau's member benefits will be there for you to learn about including Case IH with equipment on display and the incredible Air-EVac Flight Team will have a helicopter at the site. Everyone is invited at no cost to you so bring your children to enjoy all the animals and to learn about where your food comes from.
