Our club visited the refurbished bowling alley in Caledonia. We learned of changes made in the facility as well as changes in programming.
Merrill Deters talked about changes in agriculture over the years since his childhood.
Tara and Michelle spoke about Tactacam, a company recently located in Caledonia. They make small, lightweight hunting cameras. Michelle also talked about her product, “Just for Does” which is hair and skin products for women hunters. This strictly an online sales product.
Marie, a MAST exchange student from the Lower Saxony area of Germany, spoke about her experiences in this 3-month program from the University of Minnesota. She spent this time learning about dairying at Hendel Farms. She is an agriculture major and will return to Germany to enroll in a Master’s degree program near Hanover, Germany. Most dairy farms are smaller in Germany, although there are large dairies in the eastern part of the country.
