Friday Night Ag Trivia

Our activities begin on Friday, March 16 with a fun night planned of ag trivia and some sampling of some local favourites. Listen to the Warwaruk brothers from Farmery describe how they harvest natural ingredients like barley and hops, right from their own farm near Neepawa, and enjoy some samples from their extensive selection of beer.

Enjoy a sizzling slice of Red Ember’s pizza fresh out of the wood-fired stone oven at The Forks. Learn where owner Steffen Zinn sources locally grown ingredients like wheat milled in Elie and Manitoba Berkshire pork.

Test your ag trivia knowledge for a chance to win prizes with emcee Jeff Molnar from QX104.

Saturday Expo

Who’s going to win the University of Manitoba’s Food Fight this year? At the stroke of noon in the South atrium, watch as students from the U of M Faculty of Agriculture present their new food products to a panel of judges.

Beginning at 2:00 pm, join the audience in the South atrium for a series of energizing 15-minute presentations on topics covering the latest ag technology, new product development, research, and listen to farmers themselves as they share their on-farm stories and experiences.

Want to make butter? Generate electricity with potato power? Or, try Beef’s virtual reality glasses? Bring the kids and check out the interactive stations in the Tower atrium from noon till 6:00.
