ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Rock County Agriculture Ambassador Program is a new initiative welcomed with open arms to Rock County! This program was developed to bring local agriculture awareness closer to home with today’s needs and demands.
We are focusing our efforts toward the next generation, while promoting the importance and impact of agriculture and buying locally.
This program will meet the demand of the Rock County agriculture community, school, systems, and the public for accurate and accessible information regarding local production in Rock County.
It is our goal to present a variety of educational programs about beef, corn & soybeans, dairy, pork, and vegetables within the upcoming 2013-14 school year to students throughout Rock County.
