2023 Ag Career Days
Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation's (KCEDC ) Ag Career Days is a hands-on opportunity for middle-school students to explore careers in agriculture that includes everything from cheese-making to animal care. Approximately 900 students from Algoma, Denmark, Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco and Southern Door school districts as well as area parochial and home-schoolers will learn about the various aspects of agriculture, allowing them to tailor their high-school coursework towards a planned career path.
Students have the opportunity to learn about agronomy, cropping, horticulture, animals, animal nutrition, milk testing, cheese making, agriculture support services, the business of agriculture, and technology.
Agriculture has a large economic impact in Kewaunee County totaling over $80 million with $65 million coming from the dairy industry. Approximately 2,300 jobs in Kewaunee County alone are directly tied to agriculture.
Established as a biennial event, KCEDC launched Ag Career Days in 2012 so students could see how their interests could turn in to a potential career in the agriculture industry.
KCEDC Ag Career Days is a great opportunity to volunteer and help kids find a career in Agriculture. This large event is coordinated by numerous volunteers who will facilitate both career exploration and logistics.
Volunteers should plan to dress for the weather as you will be outside half the time.
Please indicate your availability on the volunteer form here.
