Celebrate Wyoming’s agriculture this weekend with events and most importantly, food.

The delicious part of agriculture comes this Saturday: the University of Wyoming is hosting its 40th Annual Ag Day Barbeque before the Pokes play Fresno State.

Food will be served from 3-5:30 p.m. at the UW Indoor Practice Facility before the 6 p.m. kickoff. 

The menu features Wyoming protein staples: smoked beef, pork, and lamb sandwiches, with green beans, corn salad, and cake prepared by the UW Food Science Club. 

Tickets can be purchased at the door with cards or cash. $20 for adults, $10 for kids 6-12, while the 5-and-unders eat for free. Proceeds benefit the many clubs and organizations associated with the UW College of Agriculture, and they help fund the Ag Day Barbeque Scholarship, awarded to two UW students who help staff the event.

After a good Wyoming BBQ and football on Saturday, head to the Albany County Fairgrounds building on Sunday for 4-H’s “Project Exploration,” where members or those who are curious to become members learn about 4-H and the projects they do. 

October is the start of a new 4-H year, and it’s National 4-H week. They’ve been celebrating all week long, and Friday, Oct. 6 is 4-H night at the Plainsmen Homecoming football game. 

4-H projects are selected topics that participants want to learn more about during the year, from Archery to fashion, animals to aerospace. For a list of project ideas, visit the 2022-2023 Project Guide found here. 

Eat and appreciate all that is Wyoming agriculture and 4-H.


Bringing These Things To A BBQ Apparently Make You Look Cheap

Social media allows for a lot of honesty. After a question was posted in a social media group it's been determined that if you bring these things to a Texas BBQ, you're considered to be a cheap guest.
