Virtual Ag-Citing Experience videos give youth a glimpse into where our food comes from

The Ag-Citing Experience was developed in 1990 by Michigan State University Extension home economist and nutrition educator Sally Carpenter, 4-H program coordinator Lynn Fiegel and community volunteer Linda Huckendubler. The event was in collaboration with the St. Joseph County Grange Fair and the St. Joseph County Farm Bureau. The program was designed to educate third graders in the county on where their food comes from along with promoting physical activity during a tour at the county fair. Not only did students learn about farm animals, they also learned about crops grown in the area.
This fun and exciting—I guess that would be ag-citing—experience has evolved through the years but remains true to its purpose. In the past 30 years, thousands of students and hundreds of teachers, tour guides, presenters and tractor drivers have participated and assisted MSU Extension in making memories that people still share today. For example, in 2019 alone, over 700 students and 160 teachers and chaperones from 11 different schools participated. Teachers shared comments including: “Fantastic!” “Very fun for the students and educational,” “Students had fun and talked about it a lot. I also enjoyed it.”

The videos are available free of charge in an Ag-Citing Experience YouTube playlist where closed captioning is also available. The main video, just under an hour long, will introduce you to all the major livestock species and types of crops grown for food and feed. Along with the main video, there are several short bonus features on topics including turning wool into clothing, taking a tour of a dairy farm, horses and horse care, and antique tractors. There is a virtual 4-H showcase where several young people show their animals like they would at a fair.
