2023 Gila County Ag Daze

Aug. 10, 2023

The Gila County Ag Daze field trip to H-4 Ranch in Tonto Basin was a success! During the school year, Gila County Cooperative Extension, provided lessons to 4th and 5th grade students throughout the county. At the end of the school year, the H-4 Ranch in Tonto Basin, Arizona, hosted ‘Ag Daze’ to close out these lessons. At this event students engaged in hands on learning at different stations set up on a rotation. The Biosecurity/Disease Transfer station challenged students to figure out the best way to limit disease spread by choosing a safe travel path for the Hay and Grain delivery truck. This was the 12th year for the Ag Daze program which included over 428 students across 15 classrooms receiving in class lessons and over 300 of these students spending a day attending Ag Daze at the H-4 Ranch.
