The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture is hosting its 10th Moms
on the Farm tour April 29 in Conway. Since 2012 Moms on the Farm has invited parents
in different parts of Arkansas to connect with the agriculturalists that produce their
“We want to give these ladies a chance to put faces and places behind the food they
buy in the grocery store,” said Janeal Yancey, a meat scientist with the Division
of Agriculture. “Over 95 percent of beef farms are family owned and I want to give
people a chance to meet some of those families and learn about how hard they work
to raise the animals that go into our food supply.”
This will be the program’s first tour in central Arkansas, and it will showcase two
beef farms and one dairy farm in the area.
“At the farms, we will see where the cows are milked, how they spend most of their
days, what they eat, and we will get to see the baby calves,” Yancey said. “Attendees
will have the chance to ask any questions they may have about beef and milk production.”
The tour will beginat the Faulkner County Extension Office at 8:30 a.m. Attendees
will return to the extension office about 4 p.m. for ice cream and a question and
answer wrap up. Lunch will be provided.
There is no cost, but space is limited. Those interested should contact Yancey at
email@example.com or 870-688-4247. The minimum age for participation is 14.
