After months of planning and collaboration, the committee for the annual Utah Agricultural Products Barbecue has announced that the barbecue has been canceled for 2010 due to multiple scheduling conflicts. Committee member Lisa Allen says the committee found it a challenge to identify an appropriate date for the barbecue that coincides with a Utah State University home football game but does not conflict with the Utah State Fair and avoids potential bad weather late in the season. Allen says the decision to cancel was not made lightly because the event is a highlight for Aggie families. Revenues from the Utah Agricultural Products Barbecue go toward funding scholarships for College of Agriculture students.The event showcases agricultural products that are prevalent in Utah and donations and revenues have funded more than 60 scholarships totaling $72,00 over the past decade.
