An Agricultural Centennial: Farm Bureau & Ag Extension Exhibit

Community Event
In January 1917, Professor V. C. Bryant of UC Agricultural Extension came to Merced to talk about the benefits of forming a farm bureau. On March 7, 1917, 417 Merced County farmers signed a petition to request the Merced County supervisors to allocate $2,000 a year for a farm advisor. This was the beginning of the UC Agricultural Extension and Farm Bureau in Merced County. As these two organizations are turning 100 this year, come to see how Ag education has changed the way of farming in Merced County over the last 100 years.
