Purdue Field Day
Purdue Field Day will take place on Saturday, June 17th. Each pre-registration comes with a lunch meal by Great Harvest Bread so be sure to pre-register and select your lunch choice. We are accepting walk-ins this year; however, depending on the number of walk-ins, we may not be able to provide you with a lunch. The price will still be the same so pre-registration is best.
Purdue will be providing the hives for in-the-hive sessions. If you are around the hives, a veil is required. We have lots of other sessions and topics, some are inside as well.
It is being held at the Beck Agricultural Center located at 4550 US-52, West Lafayette, IN 47906. The advantage is that we'll have an indoor area for eating and if the weather turns bad. Cost will be $30 for members and $40 for non-members, $15 for children 15 and under. The registration is in your latest newsletter or you can sign up online through our website. Pre-registration closes on June 12th at midnight.
We have a great lineup of some old topics and some new including sessions on:
