Ag Cab Lab
Engaging consumers in farming through the Ag Cab Lab Experience, where children of all ages climb into a full-scale Case tractor to "drive it" via a simulation provides a perspective on farming practices is a part of the outreach efforts of the MN Farm Bureau.
Although the Ag Cab Lab simulation software has been tested by over 400,000 people in the past few years at places such as the Miracle of Birth Center at the MN State Fair, the Minnesota Zoo, and the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, our concern and aim is to initiate more focus on healthy foods and nutrition which is commensurate with the RSDP and the UMN Extension programs.
