Ten Gillett students attended the Fox Valley Technical College Ag Career Day in Appleton on October 13, 2015. Students attended hands-on workshops in agronomy, ag power technology, dairy, horticulture outdoor power technology, and precision agriculture. This event allowed students to explore post-secondary options in agriculture and learn more about current industry trends.

During the dairy session focusing on nutrition, students were able to use a $7,000 machine that calculates moisture in feed. During the horticulture session, they learned about plant propagation and were able to take their own cuttings. The ag power equipment session allowed them to talk one-on-one with currents students and learn about opportunities with engines, electricity and hydraulics.
