Over 300 students visit Southeast Ag Center

GORDONVILLE, MO (KRCU) - Over 300 high school juniors and seniors from 14 high schools visited Southeast Missouri State University’s agricultural facilities Wednesday for an Educational Field Day.

Many of the students are members of Future Farmers of America.

David Mauk instructs agricultural business and agricultural education at Southeast. He says the field day is different because many high schoolers only see the university’s main campus.

"Not all of the students get to see the ag research center. So it’s an opportunity for them to see something from what they normally see, as well as the greenhouse complex that we have," Mauk said.

Students visited the Barton Agricultural Research Center and the Hutson Horticulture Greenhouse.
