In the afternoon, the Team Building segment of the seminar began. Phase one was the Chili Cook-off and phase two was a group presentation of an assigned current hot topic in agriculture such as emerging technologies and feeding the growing population. We were all split into smaller groups at the very end of the last seminar and given this assignment. This exercise required us as a group to develop a theme for our chili cookoff and research an assigned ag-related topic and present a 15 minute informative presentation.This was a judged event and prizes were awarded.
