a life. from dirt. by Pete Curran
Pete’s Ag story started at 55 years old, as a seed salesman where he volunteered on the fundraising committee of the 2019 Wisconsin Farm Technology Days. He was a concept creater of Ag Career Day ’19, that featured the first-ever interactive Career Scavenger Hunt, complete with cow ear tags, RFID buttons and Cow Monitoring Wands. Students were given a Clue Sheet, and were asked to answer a Career Takeaway question at each scavenger hunt stops to earn their scan of the cow monitor wand.
