9 a.m. – Jamie Lindamood - Where our food comes from has become increasingly important to consumers as the knowledge gap from pasture to plate has gotten larger. Lindamood will walk us through her ‘A Day at the Ranch’ tour, an educational tour to give people from the city a crash course in today’s agriculture and answer pressing questions about technology in ag. The tour was highlighted in Beef Magazine in November and Lindamood was honored with the magazine’s 2017 Trailblazer award.

10 a.m. – Harvey Koehn, a retired educator and active member of the Great Plains Transportation Museum, will discuss the various railroad stations – depots – that once graced Kansas communities, both large and small. There was an era when the railroad station was a city’s central location for travel and communication. Changes in technology and travel patterns have changed the importance of the railroad station. Koehn’s presentation includes historic photographs of Kansas railroad stations and discusses the important role they had in a community.
