Game teaches risks of farming
MONROE - Green County fairgoers can find out if they have what it takes to be a modern-day farmer and get their steers to market. Alissa Grenawalt, Green County's University of Wisconsin-Extension 4-H agent, is making Commodity Carnival's Risk Ranch available in the Exhibit Hall, where adults and children can send their "steer" through the perils of farm management to see if they can gain a profit. The hands-on, educational game board teaches players about the risks and costs associated with producing and bringing animals to market - feed, vet bills, transportation and energy costs.
