Program Description:


Would you like to join the Aggie Days Team and help spread the word about food production in Alberta?  Here’s your chance. 

The Calgary Stampede Ag Education Committee is looking for 4-H members (and parents) willing to spend time at Aggie Days; Saturday (April 6) or Sunday (April 7) assisting with specific tasks.  We could use your help in the following areas…

Blue Bell

Assist children to milk Blue Bell, the mechanical cow.  You will sit on a stool behind the guest and may need to show the guest how it’s done then allow the guest to try the experience of milking Blue Bell.  Depending on the line-up, after a certain amount of time, if the guest has not moved on, you will need to politely ask him/her to let the next person have a turn.  Two volunteers (on either side of Blue Bell) are required to be at this station from 10 am to 4 pm.  Volunteers will be “spelled off” for breaks as required. 

Lost Kids Wrist Bands

The Lost Kids stations will be located in the Rotunda area of NWEC and the Ag Barn. You will be asked to politely greet guests and invite/encourage the parents to add their cell phone number to a wristband that is then placed on the child.  You may need to assist in putting the wristbands on the young visitors.  This station will require a number of volunteers to be stationed throughout the day (10 am – 4 pm).  Volunteers will be “spelled off” for breaks as required. 

Other odd jobs

As required, there may be other tasks 4-H members may be asked to carry out. 

4-H leaders and parents are asked to supervise the 4-H members that volunteer. A bag lunch and parking will be provided for volunteers.

Thank you for considering this request.
