AG EDUCATION

Mabel is back! This fun-loving, sassy, smart goat is eager to share interesting animal show information. Children of all ages will enjoy searching for Mabel in 18 locations throughout Ag Village. NEW for 2016, Mabel will feature a display on how to judge dairy cattle (located in the Cattle Barn). Also be sure to stop by the reading garden near the Badgerland Financial Discovery Barnyard, featuring agriculture focused books for kids to peruse between visits to the various barns.
