Michigan State University Extension and the staff of the MSU Beef Research Center are ready to welcome visitors to the first Breakfast on the Farm event on the campus of Michigan State University. On Saturday, September 15th from 9 am to 1 pm (breakfast served until noon) this modern beef research center will be hopping with activity. After arriving at the farm, located at 5307 Bennett Road in Lansing, visitors will first enjoy a hot breakfast before starting out on a self-guided walking tour of the farm.

  • take care of their animals
