McNay Research and Demonstration Farm
McNay youth field days were created out of a necessity for youth to have a clearer understanding of the role of production agriculture in their everyday lives and an increased awareness of cultural differences. This program fits with Iowa State University’s mission by providing a high-quality educational experience that includes diversity education as well as providing opportunities of engagement for campus, commodity groups, and volunteers. Grants from multiple organizations and agencies have supported the majority of the costs of this program from start to finish.
