The Grand Opening of the Minnesota State Fair Moo Booth, LAND O LAKES Stage, ribbon cutting and milk "toast."
When: Thursday, Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. (Opening Day of the 2009 Minnesota State Fair)
Where: The Barn Stage at the northwest interior corner of the Minnesota State Fair Cattle Barn.
Why: The Minnesota State Fair Moo Booth has been completely redesigned to maximize the agricultural education experience in 2009. The dairy and beef education exhibit is located in the State Fair's historic Cattle Barn. Visitors will follow the farm to table process by viewing cattle as they're milked and cared for, participating in educational demonstrations, seeing today's farm technology in action and much more.
The Moo Booth also features a sampling trailer where fairgoers can sample different dairy products. The LAND O LAKES Stage at the Moo Booth is a new venue to learn about modern agriculture. Daily events include butter carving contests and hand milking demonstrations. Throughout the fair, activities on the LAND O LAKES Stage include the Butter Carve-O-Rama and Milk Chug-A-Lug contests and Minnesota State Fair Agrilympics.
More than 400 individuals, organizations, associations and corporations contributed to the remodeled Moo Booth project.
