A Guide to a Week of Agricultural Celebration

Hosted each year by the College of Agricultural Sciences, Ag Day is a long-standing celebration of Colorado agriculture and CSU. It is a time when we can come to the table together to honor our roots and the agricultural producers that provide for our community. Each year, this time in September, Nutrien Ag Day BBQ is a chance for us to showcase all it means to be an Aggie and to recognize our Colorado agricultural producers for their contributions to our economy, lifestyles, and dinner plates.

This year, things are looking a bit different, but our requisite for nutritious and sustainable meals remains more important than ever. The College of Agricultural Sciences invites you to come to the table for a week of recognition and agricultural highlights leading up to this year’s virtual Nutrien Ag Day BBQ on September 19. While we cannot gather in person, we hope you will participate through various virtual and at-home opportunities or by supporting local food banks and food access relief efforts in your area.

We welcome you to celebrate our agricultural roots with a bit of history, a few special guests, and a good old fashion at-home barbecue made complete with commodities grown right here in Colorado that you can find in your local grocery store or farmers market: wheat, dairy, beef, pork, beans, lamb, eggs, potatoes, watermelon, and corn.

To guide you in this year’s Nutrien Ag Day BBQ and virtual Aggie experience, we’ve prepared a Guidebook for an At-Home Agricultural Celebration that includes tempting recipes, amusing props, and recognition of our generous Ag Day partners.  Show your Aggie spirit, support your agricultural community, and satiate your taste buds.

It’s Nutrien Ag Day!
