NMSU OFFERS NEW INNOVATORS IN AGRICULTURE CAMP ONLINE
By Jane Moorman
...“This interactive program will introduce students to the technology and innovations that are currently being used for food production and environmental sustainability,” said Marcy Ward, NMSU Extension livestock specialist and chair of the camp’s committee."
With demonstrations, interactive exercises and virtual tours of various agricultural businesses, the students will be introduced to four areas of the industry – agriculture economics, agronomy, animal production and food processing. The students will be able to attend as many of the modules that they wish.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state’s restriction on gatherings, the committee is shifting from a four-day camp on NMSU’s campus to an online format. “The virtual tours will take camp participants to facilities they may not have an opportunity to see otherwise, such as a cheese plant, large feedlots, dairies and more,” Ward said.
