The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences again had a significant presence at the N.C. State Fair — whether it was Cooperative Extension personnel manning a station at the Cultivating a Career exhibit, the always popular N.C. State Howling Cow Ice Cream booth (courtesy of the CALS Department of Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences), CALS students teaching kids about farm animals or fashioning elaborate horticulture displays, Dr. Tom Monaco’s prize-winning peppers or a plethora of 4-H entries in a range of competitions.

Here are samples of the many ways the College contributes to the fair.
