This year’s Moos, Ewes and More will be held Sept. 6.

Moos, Ewes and More, the North Dakota State University Animal Sciences Department’s annual free, family-friendly event, will be held Saturday, Sept. 6, at the NDSU Equine Center on 19th Avenue North in Fargo.

This event, which is designed to expand your knowledge of animal-related agriculture, will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

You’ll be able to experience interactive and hands-on agriculture and animal demonstrations, and enjoy dairy product treats and food by Carnivore Catering. A mix of new and old activities this year includes stick horse races for the kids, and the chance to bottle feed a calf, learn about showing livestock and sheep shearing, Ask the Animal Scientist, and see research in action and horsemanship demonstrations.

You also can meet the animals that call NDSU home, the farm managers who care for them, and the faculty and staff who teach and do research in the Animal Sciences Department.

“We strive to provide a fun, educational event that reconnects people to where their food comes from and give the community a glimpse of what NDSU is doing to support agriculture and animal sciences in North Dakota and beyond,” says Stacey Ostby, co-director of the Veterinary Technology Program in the Animal Sciences Department and Moos, Ewes and More co-chair.
