The Fayette County Farm Bureau’s Ag Day celebration was held at Fayette Mall in Lexington, KY on March 23, 2013.
Folks stopping by were given materials on the contributions of agriculture in everyday lives. Visitors engaged in a “spin the wheel” contest in which their knowledge of common agriculture facts were tested and rewarded! Small souvenirs of tractors, barns, lip balm, pens and other items with the Fayette County Farm Bureau’s website inscribed were distributed.

On display was a Kabota RTV from Central Equipment.
